Un­cle Sam has been fret­ting over the U.S. gov­ern­ment’s pend­ing re­tire­ment cri­sis — the “re­tire­ment tsunami,” it has been dubbed — when fed­eral work­ers num­ber­ing in the mil­lions will clean out their desks and drive off into the sun­set.

The Wash­ing­ton-based Part­ner­ship for Pub­lic Ser­vice is on Jan. 10 an­nounced what it hopes will be an in­no­va­tive fix for the in­evitable tsunami: a call to ser­vice for ag­ing baby boomers.

“One so­lu­tion to our gov­ern­ment’s re­tire­ment cri­sis is on the flip side of the same coin,” says part­ner­ship Pres­i­dent Max Stier. “Just as record num­bers will be re­tir­ing from gov­ern­ment in com­ing years, mil­lions of healthy, well-ed­u­cated boomers who want to do some­thing mean­ing­ful will be re­tir­ing from their cur­rent jobs and look­ing for new pro­fes­sional op­por­tu­ni­ties — op­por­tu­ni­ties they can find in fed­eral ser­vices.”
