AMP is the best program we’ve ever done. Participants love it. At the end of the program, they say, “What’s next!” They want to learn more, stay engaged, and stay connected with friends they have made. I highly recommend AMP. It’s a game changer.
What is AMP?
The Aging Mastery Program® (AMP) is a comprehensive and fun approach to aging well that encourages people to take actions to enhance their health, financial well-being, social connectedness, and overall quality of life. Central to the AMP philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce big results and that people can be empowered and supported to cultivate health and longevity. Equally important, the program encourages mastery—developing sustainable behaviors over time. Participants in AMP go through a 10-week core program followed by optional elective classes and activities.

Why is AMP important?
Life expectancy has increased dramatically over the past 50 years, yet people are generally unprepared for this increased longevity. AMP offers an innovative approach to guide individuals through this phase of life. The program incorporates evidence-informed materials, expert speakers, group discussion, peer support, and small rewards to give participants the skills and tools they need to achieve measurable improvements in managing their health, remaining economically secure, and contributing actively in society. All program materials and resources align with the goal of helping people enjoy self-sufficient lives.
Where is AMP currently offered?
AMP is a nationwide program with a presence in more than 124 sites from Massachusetts to Florida and California to Alaska reaching thousands of baby boomers and older adults. We implement the program in a variety of ways–at the city, regional, state, and multi-state level. We partner with state leads to create large, multi-community programs across multiple states and also work with smaller, regional partners to promote community-wide adoption of the program. In addition, we work with foundations to pilot exciting new aspects of the program, such as intergenerational learning, aging in place, and technology usage.
