Learning technology can often be intimidating and overwhelming. The learning curve itself can pose the biggest challenge to ardent learners. The salience of technology and virtual connection has been made abundant due to the pandemic, as has the need for more resources on learning and developing technology skills.
Four out of five voters in the last open mayoral primary were over the age of 50New Yorkers age 50+ helped build our city and make it the great place that it is. As we look to a post-COVID recovery, we need our 50+ neighbors to help rebuild the city and maintain the stability of neighborhoods. These residents have the experience, expertise and commitment to make New York shine again, but they also face challenges that must be addressed. Whether you are a New York City elected official, policymaker, candidate, or fellow advocate, you can benefit from understanding the issues faced by our 50+ neighbors and the solutions AARP has identified.
At AARP, we envision a world where workers aged 50-plus are empowered, valued and have the opportunity to create new business and work for as long as they need or desire. For many small business owners and entrepreneurs, it is cluttered, competitive, can be difficult to navigate, and does not offer the unique guidance and resources that they need. As people live longer lives and the nature of work evolved, they will need to find ways to continually reskill and translate experience to new jobs and careers.
As part of our ongoing commitment in bringing to you fun and entertaining virtual events, AARP Long Island is proud to present a virtual sing along, Sip & Sing hosted by Bay Street Theater to bring you a fun, interactive and FREE sing along series. AARP members and guests are invited to join us every Friday at 5pm starting this Spring from April 9 to May 28, 2021. We will pick up this free series in the Fall/Winter from October 1 through December 17, 2021. This is a statewide event, all are welcome to join us from upstate to downstate!
