Coming Of Age: Explore Your Future -
workshop opportunity for the nearing or newly retired


Coming of Age®: Explore Your Future is a four-session interactive workshop that gives people who are nearing retirement or recently retired a unique opportunity to look at “what’s next” in their lives. 

Using dynamic activities, participants learn how to make their retirement experiences rewarding, satisfying, and meaningful.  Explore Your Future is not about financial planning; it is about life planning.  It focuses on the social and emotional elements of retirement that also need to be thoughtfully and intentionally planned to prevent unnecessary conflict and frustration. 

Throughout the four two-hour sessions, participants will evaluate what has influenced their decisions to consider retirement as well as who they are and what roles are important to their identities.  They will work with facilitators to create goals and objectives that will facilitate positive and successful aging.
