The waning of the pandemic as a life threatening event allows villages to expand in-person offerings. It creates opportunities to re-engage village members, volunteers, and partners in our vital work. It’s also a tender time, filled with anxiety and grief created by our body and mind’s response to stress and isolation.
Together we will explore how villages are re-engaging their members and volunteers with each other and with a shared sense of purpose and meaning. The Zoom convening is designed to re-connect your village leaders with their own joy and sense of purpose, and to spark commitment to their village and to Village Movement California.
Group registration is $200 for four people, $50 each additional person.
Individual registration is $75 for two days (one day registration not available).

The California Master Plan for Aging has five bold goals. The third goal, Equity and Inclusion, Not Isolation, includes the objective “Promote and adapt village models of volunteerism and services to reflect the strengths of California’s diverse communities.” Village Movement California is leading efforts to fulfill the objective so that more older adults have access to our life affirming model of social care.
Discover all the ways you can collaborate with Village Movement California to build innovative, community-based solutions that empower older adults to remain in charge of their lives as they age.
Expanding the possibilities for aging well means engaging new partners. Villages provide critically important supports and services to help their members stay healthy and out of the hospital. When health care organizations and villages enter into mutually beneficial partnerships, members gain access to a wider array of services and support, and villages can prosper by attracting new supporters.
When villages join forces, their united voice becomes bigger and stronger. Villages and Age-Friendly Cities share a vision for creating a world in which we would like to grow older. The World Health Organization’s Global Network for Age-Friendly Cities and Communities now includes more than 540 communities across the world. Three of them are in the San Francisco Bay Area and home to thriving villages.
Palos Verdes Peninsula Village provides a community where members continue to grow, engage with one another, and age with independence, dignity and purpose. Through volunteers and referrals, we provide support and services for members who have chosen to live in the communities and homes they love as they get older. Our mission is to preserve and enhance the comfort, security, dignity and sense of belonging for older residents who wish to continue to live on the Peninsula.
