"Broadened My Thinking"
"If I got one thing out of the program - it broadened my thinking as to how senior centers can facilitate civic engagement and provide meaningful opportunities for individuals and teams. The new centers will not be places people go to 'retire' but places they go to engage fully with their community."
Donna Phillips, Vice President, Member and Network Services,
This full-day workshop reveals how senior centers can become places that more and more people age 50+ want to go to... and that the community wants to support. Participants will discover how a re-imagined, well-promoted center -- rich with opportunities to learn and to connect and contribute - can become a major community asset.
All sessions are led by former senior center directors nationally recognized for the innovations they brought to their centers.
