Civic Participation/Employment

Domain: Civic Participation/Employment      Goal: To recruit volunteers/workers to serve

Civic engagement in Madison will become more intergenerational as younger residents are recruited to join boards and committees. Economic Development is expected to create between 100 and 150 new jobs in the community over the next few years, providing employment opportunities for all ages.

Respondents to a select survey on Civic Participation/Employment Related Services survey 55% said that job training for people who want to learn new skills is very important, however only 2% already exists. 53% said that opportunities to learn new technology such as a phone or the internet is very important but only 2% already exists.

By engaging with seniors especially with intergenerational communication is can make it so each age group can take something away from one another.
