YMCA Healthy Aging Community Cafés bring together those who are 55+ to build health in spirit, mind, and body so that we thrive with greater purpose, connection, and well-being. 

Each café is an hour-long Zoom call starting with a large group time of welcome. The next 15 minutes is spent with an expert talking about the designated subject for the day, followed by a 20-minute reflective dialogue in small groups about the subject. Everyone is invited to listen and contribute as they feel comfortable. The large group gathers back the last 5 minutes for a note of encouragement.


All YMCA Healthy Aging Community Cafés are hosted on Zoom. If you are new to Zoom and would like some assistance getting started, please note that on your registration form.
