Boomer U

Boomer U at Ambler SAAC provides a welcoming place where baby boomers and the boomer-minded can discover a variety of resources to volunteer, pursue civic engagement, re-career and find employment, as well as engage in lifelong learning, embark on healthy lifestyles and enjoy social connections in a community for all ages.

Boomer U’s mission is to create and cultivate opportunities that empower boomers to think differently and more creatively than previous generations about mid-life options and provide a catalyst for action. Boomer U will provide the resources and connections for people in midlife to rediscover who they are and what they want to do in their "bonus years" —the 30 years beyond what is considered traditional "retirement."

Boomer U is designed to respond to the unique aging trends of boomers and assist them with the transition to another life stage—that of meaningful retirement and individual renewal.

Dance
Check the newsletters of each Center to see where dance classes are being offered. No dancing experience required. Line Dancing: Line dancing burns calories, increases metabolism, stimulates endorphins, relieves depression and anxiety, and in addition, is a general all-around stress reducer. When we get our bodies moving to some stimulating music and learn new steps to a few line dances, it increases confidence and stimulates our brain.


Computers

Each Center has a Computer Learning Center designed with small class sizes in mind. There are six learning stations equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and software so you'll be able to take advantage of the best the industry has to offer. Whether you're a novice who wants to practice how to use a mouse, or a more advanced user who wants to learn how to use a spreadsheet, we've got what you need.

In Norristown. the computers are in an Internet Café setting which is FREE for our members! The computer lab is available for members to practice their skills, email friends, and use the Internet. Basic computer skills are necessary. Instruction is not provided.


Classes

Each center offers a variety of ongoing and special classes. Included are creative arts such as painting, sculpture and jewelry making. Craft classes include quilt making and the sewing arts.

There are educational classes on real estate, financial planning, legal assistance, tax assistance and the 55 Alive Defensive Driving Course.
