An exciting new opportunity to play a key role working with older Texans and partner organizations to shape the future of aging!
The mission of Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) is to harness the power of technology to change the way we age.
OATS creates change by inviting thought leaders, organizational decision-makers, and people aged 60 and older to join Senior Planet, a diverse and growing network of individual and institutional members exploring how the use of technology by older adults can create positive outcomes.
The features and benefits of Senior Planet membership include access to strategic solutions and best practices related to aging and technology, and inclusion in a thriving community of other members journeying together towards a better future.

The Ideal Candidate
Do you smile a lot? Are you the first to raise your hand when help is needed? Are you an outgoing "connector" who your friends and colleagues always see at the center of the action? Are you a "producer" who loves to build something tangible, like a program or event, or turn new ideas into reality with flair --to make a project “yours” and run with it? Are you excited to push things to new levels? Do you love working with older people?
The perfect candidate is likely to have a special combination of a big personality and impressive capabilities as a professional who can get things done. He or she will play a very central role in building and enriching the daily life of Senior Planet San Antonio, learning what makes Senior Planet so special, ensuring a fun and transformative experience for all members, flawlessly managing operational systems, developing and scheduling classes, programs, and special events, and cultivating relationships with partner organizations, serving as an ambassador to other nonprofits that will be co-producing outcomes with the seniors they serve and OATS through Senior Planet.
