New Age-Friendly Database Linking Older Adults to Educational Opportunities at NYC Colleges and Universities

Age-Friendly NYC College Link is a new searchable online database that empowers older adults to browse, search, compare, and connect with educational opportunities at more than 40 of local colleges and universities. The program grew out of consultations with hundreds of older adults throughout New York City who said they wanted to have more options for lifelong learning, but found it difficult to know exactly what was available. Older adults who are interested in seeking opportunities to learn new skills, interests, train for new careers, and simply just enjoy the rich resources available at New York City’s higher education institutions will find Age-Friendly NYC College Link to be a valuable informational hub.

Age-Friendly NYC College Link is a joint initiative of the Mayor’s Office, the City Council, and the New York Academy of Medicine, dedicated to making the resources of New York City more available to older adults.
