Active Older Adult

Active Older Adults (AOA’s) ages 62+ are a vibrant, vital part of our community. The core of our AOA program is connection - with our staff, volunteers, members, and through multi-generational opportunities which occur on a daily basis. There is a wonderful world of adventure, affinity, health and wellness awaiting you at the Y!


The Meadowlands YMCA offers a variety of wellness opportunities for active older adults—from baby boomers to seniors—including physical fitness, social activities and more.

It works on computers, tablets, and smartphones almost automatically!
