Why Partner with Coming of Age?

Coming of Age is a collaboration of organizations across the country dedicated to building a community of adults age 50+ who live with passion and purpose. It originated at Temple University in 2002 and is now headquartered in New York City. Together, we work diligently to advance the positive aging movement and fight ageism’s impact on everyone.

And what do I do with the time I’ve got left?”
