Let’s Make This Crisis the (Grand)Mother of Invention
The Chronicle of Philanthropy recently published a thought-provoking article with some specific ideas for how our older generation can have a profound impact "Generation C" (for Covid). The authors ask "What about a vast national corps of elders aimed at helping young people get off to a healthy start, read by the third grade, navigate the transition to adolescence, and find a foothold in higher education and the work force — one that might also bolster the legacy of the baby boomers in the process? This isn’t just a nice idea and a soft appeal to unify the generations. This is a necessary demand that we older people step up to save the American dream for a generation we are neglecting."
