Purposeful Aging Los Angeles (PALA) seeks to prepare the Los Angeles region for a rapidly aging population through an innovative, sustained initiative that unites public and private leadership and strategies. PALA will improve the lives of older adults and Angelenos of all ages.
The Age Mastery Program (AMP) consists of core and elective classes that combine evidence-informed materials, expert speakers, and group discussions, levels of mastery and achievement, and small rewards. AMP is a collaborative effort between the National County on Aging (NCOA), UCLA (LA Capra), Los Angeles City Department of Aging and Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services (WDACS). The program is for 10 weeks, with each week having a specific topic of discussion.
