Marconi Older Adult Program

Marconi Older Adult Program

For adults age 50+, our Marconi Older Adult Program, housed within the South Philadelphia Boys & Girls Club, is known as a community hang-out. Far from the stereotypical senior center, offer meals and wide-ranging educational, social and recreational activities. Members take part in dance, art, theater, games, discussions and more.

The center boosts 250+ active members; 700+ members and non-members served annually through direct service and information and resource assistance.

"Marconi members are truly family," said Emily Geliebter, Program Director. "Everyone looks out for each other and would do anything for their friends at the center."

Since we don’t yet know when we will be able to reopen, we’ve chosen to replace our on-site activities calendar with resources and activities for you to do at home, along with a few well wishes from your Marconi friends and family. Don’t worry—as soon as we can reopen, we’ll have plenty of fun activities scheduled!
