AGE Friendly means building a livable community for EVERY ONE!
We ARE the change WE want to see!! AGEnts for Change meets the 4th Tuesday of the month.
AGEnts for Change is a volunteer organization whose mission is “To build a cohort of people engaged in advocacy and social justice to improve the ability of older adults to live independently, with choice and dignity in their community.”
Volunteers are working to improve their community to make it friendlier to and supportive of all residents, particularly older adults. Volunteers engage in advocacy and social justice to support key issues from transportation and pedestrian safety healthy food access to proactive disaster preparation including access to information and services.
AGEnts don’t have to be experts in governmental affairs or even issues related to healthy aging, but bring their willingness to learn about issues and advocacy skills through monthly meetings, trainings and community research.
This Collaborative vision is rooted in the concept of “generativity” and is characterized by individual renewal, legacy, and social impact. We view the vast, active, and healthy baby boomer population as an untapped and vital gift to our community.
AGEnts is ideally suited for service-minded individuals seeking to create purposeful solutions that make the world a better place to live for future generations. Join us in the movement and discover your 'inner AGEnt ' for Change.
