Age Friendly Classes

Age Friendly ClassesVivalon has collaborated with Corte Madera Age-Friendly Intergenerational Center and Age-Friendly Fairfax to offer you more virtual classes.

What is Age Friendly? An age-friendly world enables people of all ages to actively participate in community activities and treats everyone with respect, regardless of their age. It is a place that makes it easy for older adults to stay connected to people that are important to them.
