Upcoming Community Cafe Events

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY CAFE?

A free, virtual discussion group for adults ages 55+. There will be a brief (15-20 min) topical introduction with ideas to frame the discussion followed by small group facilitated discussions where you will have the opportunity to share experiences and perspectives or simply listen to your peers. To wrap up each discussion, we will come back together to the larger group for an empowering to share and get a preview of the next café.
