The Growing Bolder Ambassadors are volunteers in local communities who inspire others by sharing a contagious positivity. They are rebranding aging with their energy and enthusiasm for life.
In March, more than 100 people attended the inaugural Growing Bolder Ambassador meeting in The Villages, with 70 more people on the waitlist. This event was followed by the first GB Ambassador training session in The Villages, Fla. Volunteer ambassadors learned about upcoming Growing Bolder initiatives and were the first to hear about the Launchpad to What’s Next Live! Tour, with the first stop in their community.
The first event will take place May 30, at the Sharon Morse Performing Arts Center. It will be taped and aired on PBS later this year. Celebrities and experts in various aging-related fields will join Growing Bolder founder Marc Middleton for inspiring and educational live events around the United States.
“We hope to start a groundswell movement that activates the Growing Bolder mission – encouraging people to live active, purpose-filled lives — in local communities everywhere,” Middleton said. “People of all ages benefit from hearing stories of perseverance, resilience and courage at unexpected ages. We are only limited by our belief system, and our Growing Bolder Ambassadors believe the best is yet to come.”
