JASA is kicking off the Spring 2012 semester of the Institute for Senior Action (IFSA) on Wednesday, February 22, 2012. This ten-week leadership and advocacy training program was established in 1994 to sharpen the skills of longtime community activists and serve as a vehicle for recent retirees and others to learn about and become more involved in senior advocacy. The course combines the basics of social action with important information on senior issues. Students will learn how to get more involved in the legislative process and to become effective advocates. Classes focus on a wide variety of subjects including navigating the federal, state and local legislative processes, public speaking, understanding senior benefits and entitlements, techniques of social action, and much more.
All adults 55+ are invited to apply!
