NExT3 - A Program for Suffolk Boomer Alumni


You are Suffolk University alumni, and you are "baby boomers" entering a new life stage of 10 to 15 years. Many of you are asking how to keep engaged, how to find opportunities to make a difference, and how to make connections. The Institute for Executive Education & Life-Long Learning at Suffolk has found a program to help you answer such questions.

Starting November 9, Suffolk University will offer a unique program called NExT3, to help our boomer alumni use their skills and knowledge to identify and plan how to invest their time, talent, and treasure (T3) in something meaningful . NExT3 will provide you with structure and time to set a new direction, leverage Suffolk connections, and explore opportunities for flexible paid or volunteer projects.
