Active Older Adults

Active Older Adults (AOA) in the YMCA experience a strong sense of belongingness and a network of friends who provide supportive communities for sustained health and well-being. Through on-going, fun, safe, and engaging programs, activities, and events AOA members increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building relationships and celebrating the success and milestones of each older adult within their AOA community.

Older adults, individuals 55 and above, are a significant and growing segment of our communities. All AOA benefit from engaging in YMCA activities that enhance connections, decreases a sense of isolation, and improve overall well-being.
