Pass It On Network

More about Pass It On…

Pass It On is a grassroots network of adult thought leaders – a generation in progress – learning quickly and applying both old ways of outreach and new technologies to respond to the demands of aging through mutual support networks.

The Pass It On challenge is to see what’s happening and apply what’s meaningful…. and to enjoy meeting new people from all over the world along the way.

On this website, you will find innovative programs that you could adapt and replicate 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.

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.
