[ARCHIVED] Civic Engagement Coaching Offered at the COA

TPC ribbon cutting

The Wellesley Council on Aging is launching a new initiative to help Wellesley residents aged 55 and older find a stronger purpose in their work, become more engaged in the community and balance their lives.

Beginning in early 2019, Discovery Centers for Civic Engagement will be piloted at the Tolles Parsons Center, providing peer coaching from trained Transition Navigators to help people engage with nonprofits, government agencies and other organizations in an effort to use their skills and experience in volunteer work. 

Resources such as a Discovery Toolkit listing volunteer opportunities in our community are also provided.

On Monday, January 7, from 1:30 to 2:30 PM, the Council on Aging is holding an information session about Discovery Centers and the role of Transition Navigators. Wellesley residents are encouraged to attend. 

Learn how the peer coaching process works and also how to volunteer at the Tolles Parsons Center as a Transition Navigator!

If you are unable to attend, but would like to learn more about the Transition Navigator role, please contact Gayle Thieme, Director of Senior Services at the COA. 

Advance registration for the information session is required by calling the COA at 781-235-3961 or register online.
