Mission & Vision

The SHIFT Community Vision



SHIFT guides and connects mid-lifers seeking greater purpose and passion in life and work.


SHIFT is a proven, guided and peer-supported resource for mid-lifers seeking purpose and passion in their life/work.

SHIFT seeks to be the community hub for midlifers as they navigate work/life transitions, connecting to resources, organizations and individuals that will guide members to lives of purpose and impact.

The Imperatives

More than 77 million midlifers are approaching retirement age.

Our Purpose

As a community for people during midlife who are navigating work/life transitions, SHIFT helps its members create pathways to meaningful and sustainable lives.

The SHIFT community connects individuals making midlife transitions who seek greater meaning in life and work. Some members of our community want encore careers that combine income with personal meaning and social impact. Others want to volunteer their experience and skills as a way of giving back to the larger community. SHIFT serves as a compass to help midlifers navigate these transitions.

SHIFT also engages employers and volunteer organizations to underscore the essential value midlifers bring to the workplace.
