Aging Mastery Program® (AMP) helps create new expectations, norms, and pathways for people aged 50 to 100, to make the most of their gift of longevity.
"The class offering was actually profound for me. I am 70 years old and if I’m ‘lucky’ I may have 10 more ‘good’ years. The classes offered ways to make the years happier, healthier, and more worry free." ~AMP participant
AMP helps older adults and boomers build their own playbook for aging well. It is a fun, innovative, and person-centered education program that empowers participants to embrace their gift of longevity by spending more time each day doing things that are good for themselves and for others.
AMP provides a comprehensive approach to aging well—focusing on key aspects of health, finance, relationships, personal growth, and community involvement. AMP uses a proven model of behavior change incentives with a primary emphasis on getting people to take actions to improve their lives.
