In 2014 the Center achieved National Accreditation. This prestigious national certificate puts the Eddie P. Mayne Kearns Senior Center on the list of more than 120 senior centers who meet the standards developed by National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC). These are centers that are held up as models for others to follow. Completing the accreditation process showed our Advisory Committee, staff, members and community leaders that our senior center met the highest national standards. As a new generation looks to redefine retirement, the Eddie P. Mayne Kearns Senior Center is prepared to reflect a more empowered vision of aging. Today the Center continues to serve as a second home to many of the members. The friendly, welcoming environment has helped the Center become one of the busiest in Salt Lake County.
We offer a comprehensive range of programs to enlighten, educate and enrich the lives of adults age 60 and over. We consider the Center akin to a “Senior Campus”; an abundant and evolving selection of classes, seminars and special activities are offered. For those wanting to explore their creative side, the center offers opportunities in art, craft, and music. We are proud of our health and physical activity classes that includes Yoga, Tai Chi, Enhanced Fitness, Senior Fitness, low impact exercise for arthritis, and Zumba. There is a workout room with weight machines and several stationary exercise machines.
