BCYF Senior Programs

Boston’s older residents are woven throughout of the fabric of BCYF. They are active participants in our programs. Some volunteer for us. Others are employees in a variety of capacities throughout our department. We also see every day the important role older adults play in the lives of our young people.

Today’s seniors want to be active, learn new things, and keep up with technology. Our most popular programs reflect that. We learned that Pickleball was a growing trend among seniors when we started receiving requests to use our gym for games. Our computer labs are often filled with seniors who want to learn more about social media or how to use particular software. We also have a dedicated crew of senior swimmers who enjoy our many aquatics programs in our 18 pools.

BCYF Senior Programs take place in all BCYF centers. We also have two stand alone senior centers and five community centers with dedicated senior spaces.

One in Five
By 2030, seniors will make up one fifth of the population of the City of Boston. Learn more...
