Description The purpose of this project is to examine how the aging of the baby boom generation will affect the role of senior centers in the near future. The scenarios presented will be based on the assumption that the baby boom generation is pioneering a demographic revolution and every aspect of our culture will experience great change. The relevant aspects of this demographic revolution, namely the aging of the population and the influx of the aging baby boom generation, which will be presented as a potential solution, rather than a potential social problem, will serve as a prerequisite to answering the central question, What is the Fate of Senior Centers in the 21st Century? In addition, an examination of the challenges and possibilities the baby boom generation will bring to senior centers will be presented along with suggestions for the potential niche that senior centers could position themselves to fill within this generation. Through the examination of the research, an example of how a successful campaign should be structured that would reshape the senior center image and enable senior centers to boom rather than go bust.
