It has been over a year since Senior Planet went online, and there is little that hasn’t been transformed by twelve months in lockdown. Our community has quadrupled in size, we’ve offered over 3,400 virtual programs, and we have entered a new and groundbreaking affiliation with AARP that will help us expand our impact even more.
After a challenging but invigorating year together, we are excited to step out of lockdown more connected than ever before. And what suits a new era better than a new name?
After an extensive and detailed process, including online surveys, focus groups, dozens of names ideas brainstormed and internal review, we are thrilled to announce the new name for members is: Supporters!
We wanted a new name that captured the optimism, communality and heart of our community. Senior Planet Supporters don’t just champion Senior Planet, they champion each other – no matter where they live. Whether it’s answering each other’s questions in class or meeting on the weekend to keep the Morning Stretch momentum going, our community is defined by the support we lend each other on our journey to change how the world views aging…and how we view ourselves.
Won’t you join us?
