Each year, the Association of Illinois Senior Centers presents the Mind Body Spirit award to two Centers during the annual Centervention conference. The nomination is open for 2021,
The awards are given in recognition of a Senior Center's programs that demonstrate outstanding commitment to meeting the needs of older adults in their communities. Winners from the past year are not eligible to receive the award the following year. You must be a member of AISC to submit an application. Winners are expected to attend the Association of Illinois Senior Center Educational Conference (Centervention) in February.
The mission of a Senior Center is to ensure that older adults can live independently in the community by providing programs that maintain or improve the mental, physical and emotional health of those who are 50 and older. Frequently, we refer to these as Mind, Body, and Spirit programs. Your application should describe the programs you provide. Tell us how you meet this mission with programs or services that focus on maintaining and improving the mental, physical and emotional health. Please justify how the program does this (for example, it improves health, nutrition habits, mental well-being, physical strength, well-being of the senior population of their community, etc.) along with a brief narrative stating reasons for the nomination.
Congratulations to the 2020 Winners:
