About COPA:

Americans are living longer than ever before. Are you prepared, financially and emotionally, for the challenges and opportunities that are inherent in this new reality?

The Collaborative on Positive Aging invites adults of all ages to participate in a 12-month workshop series designed to help them develop a personal longevity plan. These informative, practical, and interactive workshops will be facilitated by local professionals who are specialists in their fields. Topics to be covered include: Relationships, Finances, Life Balance and Self-Care, Living Arrangements, Meaning and Purpose, Work and Volunteerism, and much more.

COPA is a collaboration of representatives from agencies around Sonoma County, independent professionals, and interested members of the public. Our goal is to promote and facilitate positive aging in Sonoma County. To this end, we have joined together to explore ways to capitalize on, and accelerate, national interest in expanding opportunities and options for people in the second half of life. We envision Sonoma County becoming a national leader in the Positive Aging movement.
