Welcome to the Pass It On Network!

This is the place for you to connect with positive aging advocates worldwide. You will find tested, innovative programs that you can adapt and use to meet your local needs and interests.  And you can share information about your innovative programs with others. None of us has the time or money to waste on reinventing the wheel. All of the Pass It On Network programs are designed to be self-organized by older adults for little or no cost. All of them encourage self-sufficiency… with a little help from others.

As seen under Programs, Pass It On Network programs follow three paths, to:

  1. Build supportive community networks,
  2. Create pathways to meaningful work, paid and/or unpaid, and
  3. Expand learning opportunities.

 Any organization or individual can be either a Program User, a Program Innovator, or both.

Program Users Program Innovators
Go through the list of tried and tested programs developed by Innovators around the world. Click on one that interests you to see a Program Description. If you want to try it, click on the Program User Form at the bottom of the description form and complete the online form that will enable us to connect you with more program information and the Innovators. If you have a great program that meets the needs of your community and fits our mission and values, and you are willing to “Pass it on”, all you need to do is to complete the online Program Submission Form, or download and email if you prefer.  We’ll review it and get back to you to complete the process before posting your program.

It’s that simple!  As stated by a Hopi Indian elder, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”  Now we are the elders, with practical wisdom learned from experience and needed by others.  It’s time for us to share our strengths and help ourselves, each other, and our communities.
