Social Activism for Senior Citizens

Thursday, February 21, 2019; 4:30 – 6:00 pm
250 Chestnut Street, Holyoke – Community Room

Katharine Baker, retired family therapist and business consultant, and currently founder and president of the Board of Directors for Northampton Neighbors, a “virtual village” that promotes aging in place for seniors.

In this class, Katharine will present a model for social activism and volunteerism for senior citizens that is emerging from the national Village Movement. The class will engage participants in discussing their experiences of volunteerism and what kinds of social activism and community building are particularly suited to older people who are aging in their own homes. Come ready to share your experiences, and with questions.
