ACTION ACADEMY

When Adults 50+ find their voice and fuel their passions, great changes take place.

Helping people live their healthiest lives isn’t just about offering a helping hand.

Sometimes it’s about speaking out and changing the system—removing barriers and opening doors to new ideas and better ways to do things.

Our Action Academy is a monthly series of two-hour educational sessions taught by experts from leading organizations that advocate for change. For part of each session, participants learn about issues that prevent progress in making our communities healthier and safer for all. Then they learn practical skills and effective ways to make their voices heard.

Topics we’ve covered include mental health, family poverty, K-12 education, homelessness, senior issues and many more.

What’s in it for you?

We hope you’ll consider getting involved as a volunteer advocate for a cause you care about. But no matter what, you’ll be better informed when you talk to friends and colleagues, and when you vote.
