THE J.O.Y. PROGRAM (Just Older Youth)


A community that celebrates the beauty of every season of life.


Life is a journey, and we know that love, connection, exploration, curiosity, and personal-development are critical to staying healthy and vibrant. No matter what your age, it’s your time to THRIVE.


That’s why we connect through the J.O.Y. Program, a community to serve, support, and empower community members aged 55+ through relationship-building events and activities.


No matter what your age or background, you are a valuable, cherished member of our community. We’re committed to keeping the J.O.Y. Program free and accessible to all, but we can’t do it without your help!

Connect with J.O.Y.

We need love, exploration, and human relationships at every age. We
connect and strengthen our community in a space of authenticity
and openness, building bonds of friendship to help people who are
55+ not only navigate the ever-shifting landscape of aging and
transition—but thrive through growth, discovery, and support from
one another.

Our weekly sharing circles are an open space for all members of our
community to learn, teach, and grow with each other on topics of life,
aging, and personal development. These inter-generational
discussions are geared to connect and foster friendships between
community members of all ages and create intentional space for
people who are 55+ to share their wisdom.

Serve with J.O.Y.

We need love, exploration, and human relationships at every age. We
People aged 55+ are essential members of our community with so
much to give. Whether it be supporting our community events,
mentoring younger community members, or sharing hard-earned
wisdom, insight, and perspective, we create an intentional space for
people who are 55+ to invest in our community.

It’s never too late to make a difference in our world. We don’t just
connect people aged 55+ as friends, mentors, and guides. The J.O.Y.
Program opens endless possibilities to shape our community’s future.
