Many residents voiced concern that Corte Madera didn’t have quality programs for teens, few services for younger children and extremely limited programs for nearly 25% of our town’s population – our seniors.
Corte Madera’s Intergenerational Center now has the space to provide innovative, enrichment programs for all ages. The Intergenerational Center programs will create part-time job opportunities, paid or volunteer, for those with special interests who may like to teach a certain skill or simply volunteer. Teens will have a place to hang out and so will the seniors; there will be a robust variety of programs for all. The Intergenerational Center will provide opportunities for the young and the older adult to interact, building relationships among all ages, enriching our lives and preventing social isolation.
Programs at The Center include Chair Yoga, 3D Printing, Drawing and Watercolors, Reading to Preschoolers, Tune Time, Movie/Book Club, AgeSong, space for a game of Bridge or MahJong, jigsaw puzzle and more. "Ask Jody" features Jody Timms who is an authority on resources available to the older adult. Twice a month, she'll be at The Center to advise and provide individuals with information on home health care, financial aid, transportation, activities or any other need that you may have.
Coming soon is Men's Poker Game and this
summer we'll expand to have a teen lounge
and Makerspace, equipped with 3D Printers
and a Laser Cutter.
