EVOLVE program helps seniors effect change

The Roseville Area Senior Program, Roseville Area Schools and the North Suburban Senior Council are forming an EVOLVE class for residents in the school district, which include residents of Falcon Heights and Lauderdale. EVOLVE classes give people 50 and older the tools they need to make positive community change. Participants match their interests, talents, and skills to needs in their communities and learn how to turn their ideas into action. Course facilitators help participants design and implement a community project—either as part of a team or individually.
Projects initiated by past participants include helping a food shelf buy refrigeration units to store fresh fruits and vegetables and turning an inherited farmstead into an accessible arts facility.

Classes will run through May 17 and meet in the Willow Room at Roseville City Hall, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., every other Friday starting Feb. 8 and ending May 17. Cost is $750 and includes materials and lunch. Partial scholarships are available.
