Who are we?
EngAGE changes lives by transforming affordable senior and multigenerational apartment communities into vibrant centers of learning, wellness, and creativity.
How do we achieve our goals?
By delivering life-enhancing, tailored programming in well-being, the arts, lifelong learning, and intergenerational opportunities, seniors and others are enabled to use their acquired skills in real-world ways to gain enrichment and mastery. Through our programs, participants experience the empowerment of intellectual and creative engagement, and improve their health at the same time. We have chosen housing as our platform to deliver programs that fully engage residents and provide them with dynamic intellectual and creative challenges as well as a healthy sense of self-fulfillment, value, and community, all at no cost to the participants.
Additionally, EngAGE produces a weekly one-half hour radio show, “Experience Talks,” to shine a light on the value of experience in society and change the way people think about aging. “Experience Talks” airs for 250,000 listeners on Sundays at 5:00 p.m. on KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, 98.7 FM in Santa Barbara, 93.7 FM in North San Diego, 99.5 FM in Ridgecrest, and streams live on the web at www.kpfk.org. It is also syndicated on up to 100 radio stations nationally in the Pacifica Network. Previous shows are archived on the show’s website at www.experiencetalks.org.
The EngAGE mission is to empower people – intellectually, creatively, and emotionally – to do what they do best for the rest of their lives. Where others see a problem, we see potential. Where loss, decline, or deficit are perceived, we see opportunity and capacity.
