At town halls and roundtables, JCGF reframes aging, turning negative representations into positive ones of growth and achievement. A call program addresses social isolation, providing phone calls from trained volunteer ambassadors one to three times a week. Elder abuse and financial fraud prevention work brings expert panels to libraries and senior centers to educate seniors about scams that target them and to highlight the problem of potential abuse within extended families. A workforce initiative educates older adults about critical skill sets for the new hybrid work culture, the best format for successful online interviews, the way to reframe resumes to demonstrate life skills, and how to hone required computer skills. Throughout, advocacy and policy activities seek to eliminate the root causes of isolation, victimization, and economic instability and to empower elders as they embark on the next phase of their lives.
