Denver colleagues keep expanding the encore movement in Colorado and beyond, this month with compelling images of older adults and a TV spotlight on boomer volunteers.

Changing the Narrative Colorado‘s REAL (Realistic Examples of Aging in Life) photo contest wants your photos of older adults that combat ageism and show our impact.  They’re looking for people in the workplace, particularly with multi-generational teams, and in a variety of working roles; as entrepreneurs or small business owners; or serving the community as volunteers or advancing social causes

The contest is one of many ways this partnership of NextFifty Initiative and Rose Community Foundation is telling a new story of later life – and sparing us from stock photos. Send your entries before April 28, and check out the rules here.

Denver’s Nine TV celebrated National Volunteer Week with a segment featuring Boomers Leading Change ED Phil Nash and Volunteer Recruitment Manager Lynette Reiling. Saying “strike up the band for older adult volunteers,” Phil highlighted BLC’s largest-in-Colorado Americorps Encore program, Advocacy Academy and health-related training programs.
