Get Involved

There are numerous ways individuals and organizations can be involved with the implementation of Age-Friendly DC.

Age-Friendly DC Speakers' Trainings

Are you interested in helping to spread the word about making DC an age-friendly city? Do you want to learn more about what the District is doing to help residents stay in their communities as they age – and then share that knowledge with friends and neighbors?

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.
