The technology revolution is reshaping our world and has coincided with an equally significant development: the dramatic extension of the human lifespan. With Americans now routinely living into their 70s, 80s, 90s, and beyond, a brand new set of opportunities exists to harness the power of technology to transform the way we age.
Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) operates at the center of these intersecting revolutions, innovating new approaches that combine technology, learning, community- building, and advocacy to create pathways that produce transformational outcomes in the lives of older adults.
OATS is at the forefront of this movement. Over the last several years the organization, founded and led by acclaimed social entrepreneur Tom Kamber, has opened the world’s first technology- themed community centers for older adults, built a network of over 60 partner locations in several states and regions, created an online learning platform, and publishes a provocative and popular website, all of which are carefully designed to deliver award-winning program experiences that engage, challenge, and support seniors to embrace and use technology to build their social networks, increase their economic mobility, get healthier, learn and create, and make their voices heard on issues they care about. The OATS team and its wildly successful Senior Planet model have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, PBS, NPR, and the TODAY Show.
Funding partners in Colorado have invited OATS to bring Senior Planet to Denver and several other communities in Colorado, and the organization is looking for a dynamic and experienced leader to spearhead and manage Senior Planet’s presence in the state.
