The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) is a new 10-session course designed to help older adults learn how to enrich their
longevity by mastering aging with other members of the community. The program will start on Wednesday,
September 6, 2017, at Fordham University’s Westchester campus, 400 Westchester Avenue, West
AMP consists of a series of 10 classes, 90 minutes each with a focus across three areas: life enrichment,
physical health and financial stability. The program, developed by the National Council on Aging, is offered
under the auspices of the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services Livable
Communities Program in partnership with Fordham University’s Ravazzin Center on Aging and the Hebrew
Home at Riverdale. This first series of classes will be offered free of charge with funding support provided by
the New York State Office for the Aging.
“This is an opportunity to meet new friends, provide support and encouragement to your peers, and
become more involved as a leader in your community,” said DSPS Commissioner Mae Carpenter. “Like many
of the services we offer, AMP is a valuable program. Please take advantage of these classes and register today.”
The 10-course program will start on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
and will repeat on a weekly basis through Wednesday, November 15, 2017. All classes will be held at
