BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The East Baton Rouge Council on Aging (EBRCOA) opened a new location named the “Ageless Circle.”
The grand opening and ribbon cutting took place Thursday, June 17 at 10:30 a.m. at 3820 Gus Young Avenue in Baton Rouge.
The Ageless Circle will be the hub of an intergenerational mentoring program called the Ageless Program partnering local seniors with youth. Together, retired educators, youth, community leaders and volunteers will:
- Focus on improving academic performance
- Teach social etiquette and financial literacy
- Reduce and/or prevent substance abuse in young adults
- Provide community service opportunities
“We are overjoyed to finally be able to open the doors to the Ageless Circle,” said Tash Clark-Amar, CEO of EBRCOA. “It has been an amazing journey to witness the transformation of the fire station into this hi-tech, state-of-the-art intergenerational center.”
