The Almaden Senior Program is located in the heart of the Almaden
Valley in San Jose, California. We are a City of San Jose program which is part
of the Almaden Community Center. Our program offers a variety of classes, groups,
and services to people 50 years and older, with such a wide variety of
activities there is something for just about everyone.

Happy Labor Day -- Monday, September 1
New Recreation Leader at Almaden
Hello! Although I have had the pleasure of meeting with
many of you already, I would like to take this opportunity
to introduce myself. My name is Amy Jewett and I have
recently transferred to the Almaden Community Center to
coordinate the Active Adult 50+ programs. I have a true
passion for working with older adults and could not be
happier about my new position. I graduated from San Jose
State University with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology
with a minor in Psychology, where I focused on health,
wellness, and physical activity throughout the lifespan. I
am a firm believer that if you don’t use it, you lose it!
Please feel free to stop by my office any time to chat, especially
if you are a volunteer (or interested in becoming
one)! I am truly looking forward to building a connection
with each and every one of you.
