Fresno, CA

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2021

Project Category: Engaging residents alongside thought leaders in problem solving

Description: Statewide advocacy in California can be a difficult process for residents to navigate. To increase community engagement towards more livable communities, the California State University Fresno Foundation created a curriculum tailored to adults aged 50 or older. The Foundation then provided 24 hours of online instruction to a cohort of older adults over the course of several weeks. Participants learned about issues facing older adults in the Central Valley, where the fastest growing demographic is adults over the age of 85. The students heard from -- and about -- local community groups. They also improved their public speaking, leadership and advocacy skills.
