Senior Activity Centers

a large group of seniors exercising

The Activity Centers at Senior Friendship Centers are energetic, light-filled spaces where seniors can take classes, exercise, play cards, socialize, create art, listen to live music, learn a new language, and learn about healthy aging. They create community in every sense of the word – by providing comfortable places to gather, dance, have coffee with friends, and more. Lunch is also available for registered dining clients. Activity Centers are located in Sarasota and Venice, with satellite offices in DeSoto, Charlotte and Lee Counties.


The centers in Sarasota and Venice are open to everyone age 50+ and offer live music, dancing, billiards, a library, exercise classes, art lessons, language classes, holiday events, and much more. Annual membership is $150 per person. Seasonal individual six-month membership is $90. All programs offered at the center are free to members. Center membership is required, limited partial and full scholarships available.

We also operate satellite locations that offer games, fitness, meals, discussion groups and crafts in all four counties.
