BoomerWorks is revolutionizing the way long-term unemployed people ages 50+ think about generating income. Becoming income resilient requires solutions to overcome the traditional W-2 mindset and invigorate career paths for millions of sidelined workers.
Providing educational programming, training, access to resources and community building takes funding. BoomerWorks, a 501(c)(3) program of the United Charitable Foundation, relies on the financial support from our valued donors – like you!
Please join us today in making a difference in people’s lives and livelihoods. No donation is too small.
Our fundraising goal of $1 million by the end of 2019 will support a range of opportunities enabling professionals ages 50+ to transition successfully into freelance and small business ownership.
In the summers of 2017 and 2018 we introduced two community-wide Bootcamps. Building on these successful events, we will be launching MeetUp groups throughout the Washington, DC area and hosting additional live Bootcamps in 2019.
In the long-term, we will offer a range of opportunities including the following:
EDUCATION: To support our national and global expansion, we will provide...
COMMUNITY BUILDING: To foster a growing and supportive movement of self-employed professionals, we will provide ongoing learning, resource sharing and mutual accountability, along with care for the emotional and financial needs of the whole person.
REGIONAL CONFERENCES: As our Bootcamps become more robust, we envision large gatherings across the US and globally to convene self-employed professionals, thought leaders, employers and related alliance partners.
TECHNOLOGY: To facilitate ongoing, meaningful connections among our self-employed community, we will launch a digital platform that educates, builds community and provides a robust algorithm to connect professionals with each other and with employers eager to retain the services of a flexible workforce.
ADMINISTRATION: In alignment with our mission, we plan to employ people ages 50+ in the strategic, fundraising and logistical roles of executive director, program manager and administrative coordinator. In the long-term, other functional areas will include staff to manage constituent relations, marketing/communications and curriculum development.
