Senior Goodwill Ambassador Program

The objective of the Senior Goodwill Ambassador (SGA) Program is to influence community inclusiveness by promoting an intergenerational approach which engages New Brunswick seniors, their families, and friends and community members in healthy active living, supporting independence and a culture of wellness.

Senior Goodwill Ambassadors are New Brunswick residents 60 years of age and older who volunteer to participate in events or programs within their community.  They participate in activities to influence the senior’s capacity to make healthy choices through conversations, public presentations at workshops or conferences, and attendance at community and social events.  Senior Goodwill Ambassadors speak with individuals and groups about wellness, healthy active living and staying engaged in their community.  They promote an intergenerational approach to enhance opportunities to create conditions which support inclusion, community connectedness, and age-friendly environments.
