Encore Boston Generation to Generation launch


Join Encore Boston Network, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ellen Goodman,

and EOEA Secretary Alice Bonner

for the launch of an exciting new campaign to improve the lives of young people.

Every Child Deserves a Fair ChanceEvery Child Deserves a Fair Chance

At Encore Boston Network, we believe adults 50+ have the time, talent and motivation to help kids get a strong start in life. That’s why we’re working to connect this largely untapped resource with organizations that are making a difference. Like Big Brothers Big Sisters, Generations Inc., Jumpstart, Playworks, 826 Boston, ReServe Chelsea, and the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. With these partners, we’re shaping the tools and approaches we’ll use to connect a growing number of organizations to this rich talent source.

CEN founding member Raines Cohen and several Boston-area CEN and Life Planning Network (LPN) members will be participating; join some of us beforehand for no-host coffee/breakfast at 9 AM around the corner at Au Bon Pain.
