It's time to put ageism in its place!

Getting older is the one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs of our time and celebrating birthdays can give you more birthdays to celebrate (7.5 to be precise)!

Join us, educate yourself, embrace ageing, and fight for a better future where growing old is seen as an opportunity rather than a liability. 

Presenter Jenna Wickens, MasterMinds Coordinator - Catholic Family Services of Simcoe County

Prior to working with Catholic Family Services as the MatureMinds Coordinator, Jenna engaged older adults through virtual platforms, worked in family ministry, and directed a youth centre. Her educational background is in Community Recreation from Brock University and Niagara College. For over a decade, Jenna has been a storyteller for those whose voices often get lost in the shuffle. Through both poetry and prose, she has advocated for the encouragement and resiliency found in others. In recent years, Jenna has become a spokesperson against ageism, recognizing that a cultural shift needs to occur if we are to see "growing old" as an opportunity not a liability. Jenna is passionate about her faith, puns, and people. She wants people to know that they are valued and firmly believes that the greatest superpower is hope.
