Coming of Age
KQED is proud to be a sponsor of Coming of Age. The Coming of Age initiative seeks to harness the talents, skills and energy of one of our most valuable resources: people age 50+. Coming of Age develops volunteers in two ways: by helping organizations strengthen their capabilities, and by helping people 50+ explore passions, pursue lifelong learning, become leaders, and engage in meaningful service to the community. Please visit www.comingofage.org/bayarea for more information.
