JOY Center

Each week, JOY Inc. presents the JOY Center, a free program of courses and activities designed for lifelong learners. The JOY Center was a way to explore the community’s interest in this type of programming, to galvanize support for our vision of a future Upper Keys community center, and to serve as a pilot version of that center. Open to the community, the JOY Center regularly brings together more than eighty people for these daytime programs and saw continuous growth in participation and our reach into the community.

JOY Center Session Topics: Food – Science – Body – Arts – Wellness – Literature – Mind – Movies – Games – Languages – Relationships – Nature – Spirit – Movement – Social – Health
