Age-friendly MA Releases First Year Report

Doug Dickson  | Published on 7/27/2020


In 2018, Massachusetts became an age- and dementia-friendly state. In 2019, it completed and began to implement a 5-year action plan. Now the Executive Office of Elder Affairs has released a progress report for the first year of the age-friendly action plan. This report cites the work of Encore Boston Network in leading a collaboration with other organizations to help people over 50 master the job search process and advocate for their interests with employers.


You can read the report here. EBN's job search collaboration is mentioned on page 8 and in several other places in the report, as is our work in connecting people over 50 with youth through our Gen2Gen initiative.
