Village Mentor - 12 PM PT / 1 PM MT / 2 PM CT / 3 PM ET
SPECIAL PRESENTATION: Villages, Solo Aging, LBGTQ + Belonging
Join Sherrill Wayland from the National LGBTQ+ Aging for a special presentation during our March 13 Village Mentor webinar that will explore solo aging and the ways Villages can be LGBTQ+ inclusive and foster belonging for all older adults. The Village model is based on the principles and practices of belonging, reciprocity, and mutual aid. Villages are intentional communities that offer social connections, help from intergenerational volunteers, and access to expertise to support healthy aging at home. Some Village members and potential members have struggled over the years to feel a true sense of belonging. This may be true for your LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community members who may fear being out due to discrimination and stigma. When Villages make a commitment to diversity and equity, inclusive of sexual orientation and gender identity, it can provide those who identify as LGBTQ+ with a real sense of belonging. Topics discussed will highlight solo aging, social engagement, and belonging and outreach strategies.
This reoccurring meeting is the Second Monday of every month!
Join seasoned Villagers on a webinar to help new and developing Villages. This webinar will guide and answer start up questions and assist open Villages in need of additional help with Village operations.
