There are numerous ways individuals and organizations can be involved with the implementation of Age-Friendly DC.
Age-Friendly DC Presentations
Are you interested in learning more about Age-Friendly DC? Do you want to hear what the District is doing to help residents live purposeful lives and stay in their communities as they age? Age-Friendly DC is gearing up for the release of our 2015 Progress Report and will host a series of trainings throughout the month of October for community members who would like to get involved with the initiative and help give presentations throughout the District on the plan and its progress. There are many ways to help out, so whether you enjoy public speaking or are more of a researcher and data analyst, we invite you to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-727-7973 and let us know how you'd like to be involved.
We are working on arranging dates and locations for volunteer training and will post those as soon as they are confirmed.
Age-Friendly DC Block-by-Block Walk
Between March and September of 2014, 104 of 296 Single Member Districts (SMDs) were surveyed regarding walkability, neighborhood amenities, and specific concerns. During the spring Walks, hundreds of volunteers took to the streets of DC to identify neighborhood assets and issues needing attention all through the lens of DC residents 60 and older. When the data from all the Walk areas is combined, it will help the city improve policy and practice to make daily life better for those who live, work or visit.
There are SMDs that still need to be surveyed. Learn how you can help.
