Our grant will be used for purchasing audio/visual equipment to support Yu-Ai-Kai’s new lecture series. This new multi-media lecture series will be on topics of interest to seniors in the JA Community in San Jose’s Japantown, and the greater bay area.
Yu-Ai-Kai’s mission is to promote healthy aging, successful independent living, and advocate for all seniors, while embracing Japanese American traditions. Their vision is to empower seniors to age well, & thrive.
Today, Yu-Ai-Kai serves 3000+ seniors and their families annually, who range from ages 55 to 100+. The average participant age is 85. In the past year, Yu-Ai-Kai has seen an increase in attendance at their nutrition program and at Yu-Ai-Kai’s workshops, which educate seniors on maintaining a proactive, healthy lifestyle.
