There is an article in the evening edition of today's Nikkei Newspaper (p. 19) that more and more retired babyboomers are engaging in volunteer activities, supporting not only elderly people but also elementary and middle school pupils at school as lecturers. For example, a middle school in Itabashi-ku, Tokyo, had such volunteering babyboomers offer a special program, where pupils can experience simulated job situations, and Miyagi Prefecture has adopted a registration system, where retiring babyboomers can register for possible teaching positions at public schools. One merit of having babyboomers as teachers is that they can teach pupils social skills as well as manners. This article also reports that, according to a recent study by Nomura Research Institute, close to 80% of babyboomers in their late 50s wish to continue working beyond 60, because they would like to be active mentally and physically (62.7%), and also because they feel they need to work for extra income (60.9%). This result is consistent with the explanation in the Harada-Suzuki book reviewed yesterday.
