Virtual Senior Academy

Welcome to the Virtual Senior Academy. If you’re looking to expand your horizons and make new friends, the Virtual Senior Academy is for you! We offer live learning experiences using video chat software that cover topics like health and wellness, arts and music, book clubs, history, current events, and much more. Class facilitators are community members like you who want to share their passion and knowledge with other Pittsburghers. Not a Pittsburgher? Not a problem! Everyone is welcome.

The Virtual Senior Academy was created by the Jewish Healthcare Foundation in 2017, as a free program to connect adults age 50 or older in the Pittsburgh region through interactive courses online. The program has expanded and is now run by AgeWell at the Jewish Community Center. Learn more about AgeWell at the JCC here: https://jccpgh.org/adults-2/agewell/.
