SHIFT guides and connects mid-lifers seeking greater purpose and passion in life and work.

Your gift ensures that this small but mighty organization is there for you and your friends when we’re managing work transition, life change or exploring our purpose and passions.

“The group of friends I met through SHIFT has met monthly for over a year and a half. They’re my rock as I navigated a career change at 50. Thank you for bringing us together!”

SHIFT’s Values:

  • Meaningful work, paid or unpaid, is a critical element of a vibrant life. 
  • Productivity plus purpose is essential to the health and well-being of both individuals and the community.
  • Deep, rich, conversations are key to creating community and discovering personal meaning. 
  • Listening involves more than just hearing. Reflection, as well as honest sharing and constructive feedback with others, are the first steps in the process of change.
  • Everyone, regardless of age, ability, or personal station, is a recognized resource.

In this uncertain time, we’re doing things differently. We’ve made the bold move to make 100% of our programming virtual so that barriers to participation have been removed  - not only for our local community, but for all who are navigating midlife work and life transition both across the United States and the world.    Your generous gift is a tangible way to support our ongoing work to provide the following:

 SHIFT offers over 100 educational events, workshops, and learning sessions per year. Our diverse topics include:

  • elder law,
  • career development after age 50
  • healthy aging research 
  • caregiving, creating small businesses
  • building confidence
  • using technology
  • downsizing things and space
  • organizational journaling
  • skill-based volunteering
  • and much, much more.

But don't take our word for it...see what our members are saying about SHIFT

"SHIFT connected me to the most amazing people! Each time I take part in a forum or workshop, I learn something new.”

“I have been a SHIFT member for some time, but now that I am semi-retired, I love the combination of learning and volunteering that SHIFT offers. That creates a real community.”  

Again, thank you for your support
