This is the program that's been called a "game changer for older adults". AMP is a fun, innovative, and person-centered education program that empowers participants to embrace their gift of longevity by spending more time each day doing things that are good for themselves and for others. The program encourages mastery—developing sustainable behaviors across many dimensions that lead to improved health, stronger economic security, enhanced well-being, and increased societal participation. Call the Center for details on the next session!

Last summer, Anthem BCBS and Anthem Foundation brought a professional film crew to the Center to make a video. The video's focus is on the Aging Mastery Program, and the powerful impact that AMP and senior centers are having. The star of the 3 minute video is Carolyn, who took the AMP course right here at Woodbury Senior Center, and some of the other members of the Center. It was a long and exciting day of filming, and we are thrilled with the result. Take a look; watch now to see how Anthem's support of the Aging Mastery Program is making a difference right here in Woodbury, and across our nation. Happening NOW: AMP class is being offered virtually! We plan to offer the class again in September; call us for more information (203) 263-2828.
