Connect The Ages is a social enterprise founded by gerontechnology entrepreneur, Amanda Cavaleri. Realizing the global workforce shortage in aging, she began experimenting with other young professionals who have found their calling serving aging Americans. Volunteers including technologists, real estate developers, nurses, bankers, filmmakers, architects, educators laid the groundwork for Connect The Ages. These young professionals and students are fulfilled in their work and feel fortunate to have found careers in aging, and most of us landed here by chance.
Connect The Ages was formed because, despite incredible demand, young people do not have careers in aging on their radars. Multimedia and grassroots campaigns are intended to change this. This group of talented individuals is driven to bridge the gap between educators and students and the demands of an aging America. Connect The Ages is thrilled to unveil the opportunity of a lifetime - the opportunity to do well while doing good. Together, we will build a workforce pipeline for our grandparents, our parents and eventually ourselves.
