WHYY seeks stories of people over 50 for series

Here is an opportunity for those in our local region. For many people age 50 and over, retirement is seen as an opportunity to open another chapter in their lives where experience, knowledge and passion become an asset to their communities.

WHYY and Coming of Age, a civic engagement partnership also sponsored by United Way, AARP and Temple University, is providing a chance for these individuals to tell their stories on the new Coming of Age Radio Series on 91FM and The series will explore the many ways that people fifty plus in the Greater Philadelphia area are pursuing their interests and making a difference.

The public broadcasting station is looking for first-person experiences about connecting and contributing in your neighborhood or in larger arenas from people aged 50+ in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region.

Here is the opportunity for you to share your experiences as a volunteer for the National Adoption Center. Some of you have generously contributed your time and efforts to help us with our Match Parties, which bring together in a friendly fun-filled setting children waiting in foster care to be adopted and families desiring to adopt. Other volunteers have assisted at our annual gala, golf tournament or other events.
