Re-live your dream

When people were younger they couldn't fulfill their dream, now they can.

Who is your idea designed for and how does it support the dreams and obligations of those 50 and older?

It's designed for people 50 and over who did not fulfill their career goals or dreams, who are willing to go back to school and work for their dreams.

Back when people who are 50 years old and older were beginning their careers, they couldn't do what they wanted. It wasn't an option. Now with the new available fields out there, these 50 year olds+ can go back to schools for cheap or for free and finally live their dream.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

I would lightweight experiment by asking everybody the age of 50 or older if they have fulfilled their realistic career goal.

hi Jordan,

Interesting idea. It reminded me of Mo's post during research https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/financial-longevity/research/an-interview-with-a-58-year-old-primary-school-teacher
How do you envision the courses to be organized? Who would be offering them?
How does it connect to Credit Unions? Looking forward to learn more about your idea.
