Older Americans Month 2019: Connect, Create, Contribute

For over 55 years, Older Americans Month (OAM) has been observed to recognize older Americans and their contributions to our communities. Led by the Administration for Community Living’s Administration on Aging, every May offers opportunity to hear from, support, and celebrate our nation’s elders.

This year’s OAM theme, “Connect, Create, Contribute,” encourages older adults and their communities to:

  • Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.

  • Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.

  • Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

Communities that encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger! By engaging and supporting all community members, we recognize that older adults play a key role in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks, and lives.

Carter Burden Network will use OAM 2019 to highlight the ways older adults in NYC can Connect, Create, and Contribute through our programs, services, activities and classes designed to nurture mind, body and spirit. There's something for everyone at CBN:

In addition, participating in these programs and services provides the opportunity to form enriching connections with other members, CBN staff, and volunteers of all ages.

No matter where you are in your life, there is no better time than now to start. We hope you will join in to Connect, Create and Contribute!
