We are excited to bring the Redefining Retirement program to the communities of Berwick, Liverpool and Truro in 2019.
There are five modules in the program, which are organized into the following schedule:
Berwick at the Berwick Baptist Church, 265 Commercial Street, Berwick (all sessions 9:00am-12:00pm)
Liverpool at the Emera Centre, 50 Queens Place Drive, Liverpool (all sessions 9:30am-12:30pm)
Truro at the Truro Library, 754 Prince Street, Truro
(all sessions 1:00pm-4:00pm)
The Redefining Retirement program is designed to help participants work through a process of personal reflection, community discovery, opportunity identification and idea implementation.
Each participant will reflect on their skills, interests, experience and passions, and how they could be of benefit to their own community, and help themselves to feel more fulfilled in their retirement, or the next stage of their life. Participants may chose to apply their skills through the development of a business, a social enterprise, by mentoring a community member or choosing to volunteer with an existing organization. The sky is really the limit!
There are five modules in the program, and each module builds on the information gathered and work done in the previous module. Therefore, participants are strongly encouraged to attend all five modules. However, we know that situations arise which may prevent someone from attending a session. We'll work with participants who miss a session to help them get back on track.
The program is 100% free, thanks to the generous support from the Department of Seniors and our local hosts. Each participant will receive a personalized binder to keep.
