NEW! Civic Academy: Is it Time to Make Your Voice Heard?
4 sessions, 10 hours
Do you watch the news and wonder why “someone” doesn’t do something? Could that “someone” be you? Seniors can be a powerful voice to create change in their neighborhoods, communities, and state. This practical course will help you find your voice, sharpen your passions, and create an action plan to create lasting change in your community. Each class will provide opportunity for education, reflection, and discussion as to how you can become a super hero for change.
Instructor: Marcy Gouge is a retired attorney with a specialization in issues that impact elder Americans. After twenty years as a litigator in Colorado, she moved to Washington DC to work at the AARP Foundation as the Director of the National Legal Training Project. She later worked with programs that helped “scam proof” older Americans, including managing a federal grant that encouraged seniors to become “Fraud Fighters” to protect themselves and educate others about how to prevent scammers from stealing their assets.
