Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community. At a time when older adults may find their social networks shrinking, San Francisco Village programs offer opportunities to expand. Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

A story can be sparked by almost anything – a wooden spoon, a flower, a photo, someone else's story. It could be a personal story, a family folklore, a fiction tale, a myth, a fairy tale. Join this storytelling workshop to build on and expand techniques useful in how you share your stories in a way to captivate listeners. Workshop themes, prompts, and tales can be used in future neighborhood circles, gatherings of friends and family, and SFV programs. As we listen and share, our San Francisco Village community grows stronger. Olive Hackett-Shaughnessy returns to SF Village as performer, teacher and guide into the oral tradition as shared experience in community.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
