Communicate, Connect & Collaborate Across Communities:

The Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging


Want to learn more about community-based initiatives and best practices that help older adults thrive across Northern New England? Want to connect with others who care about issues facing older adults?


Join a diversity of organizations and individuals working to facilitate cross-state conversations and to cultivate new and innovative practices to help us age with health and dignity. It’s called the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging, or TSLCA.


Learn more at and sign up to become a member (it’s open to everyone in VT, NH and ME).


TSLCA hosts forums, monthly webinars, and a tri-state conference. There is no doubt that our Vermont communities face significant challenges in the face of our rapidly aging demographics. Our friends in New Hampshire and Maine are facing these same challenges and seeking similar solutions. So let’s all communicate, connect, and collaborate as much as we can.  Check out the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging today.
