Program for Senior Advocates

The Program for Senior Advocates is a free educational program provided by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Council on Aging for senior citizens within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area.  In keeping with the mission of the Council on Aging, to address, support, and advocate the rights and needs of aging adults on issues that affect them, the Program for Senior Advocates helps to empower the senior participants to advocate on their own behalf and/or on the behalf of their community.

     The Program for Senior Advocates is working with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Senior Nutrition sites to educate the older adult participants on matters important to today's older adult, such as advocacy, assertiveness, legal issues, and city and county government.
