Lifelong learning opportunities keep minds sharp, improve memory skills, increase self-confidence, and provide opportunities to meet people with similar interests.


Education and Activities

Nothing transforms the aging experience like feeling young and fit, both mentally and physically. Open to all seniors in the community at no or low cost, we offer fun classes that engage and educate:


Civic Engagement

Serving Seniors’ Civic Engagement Group engages and empowers low-income seniors in addressing challenges that impact the senior community. Program participants meet weekly to identify concerns and work together to develop strategies for addressing key issues.

Participants are encouraged to form relationships and engage in meaningful activities, increasing social mobility, helping foster a sense of purpose and enabling them to give back to the community through volunteer service. Seniors volunteer not only at Serving Seniors, but also at local community organizations.

If you’re interested in participating in the Civic Engagement group, or represent an organization in need of senior volunteers, please call Tim Ruis: 619-487-0727.


Senior Leadership Development Institute

A subgroup of the Civic Engagement Group, the Senior Leadership Development Institute focuses specifically on providing seniors with the knowledge, tools and training they need to be active and engaged community leaders. Seniors attend workshops on public speaking, how to be a compelling advocate, social and political issues and more.
