The MPTF’s MediaCenteris a model of senior engagement that marries creativity with technology, incorporating the involvement of multiple generations. Recognizing that the urge to create never goes away, the Media Center pairs older adults with high school and college volunteers who share their diverse film experience spanning generations to create meaningful content together. This exemplifies MPTF’s goal to create a sense of community among entertainment industry workers, and foster support for essential health, wellness, social and retirement services.
