Roseville Area Senior Program 651-604-3520

Welcome to the Roseville Area Senior Program! We have served the Roseville Area for more than 35 years and take a great deal of pride in the extensive list of programs and services we offer. Our mission is to promote and provide quality services, educational and social programming for persons over the age of 55 who seek to maintain an independent lifestyle and sustain quality lives.

The Roseville Area Senior Program is a program of Roseville Area Schools Community Education with support from individual contributions. Additional funding is received from Ramsey County, and Senior Services Consortium of Ramsey County, DARTS via the Older Americans Act administered through the Metro Area Agency on Aging and the Minnesota Board on Aging.

Contact us!  We would love to meet you in person to show you what we have to offer and how you can join in the fun.

 

Roseville Area Senior Program (RASP) Advisory Council

The purpose of this council is to advise and assist the Program Coordinator and Community Education Director to plan, develop, implement, and evaluate RASP. We invite community members who live in the Roseville Area School district and are already active at RASP, others who are interested in and/or have knowledge and skills in older adult educational programs and services. Members recommended to serve a two year term on this council. There will be six meetings per year. The meetings are every other month on the first Tuesday of the month from 3:00 -4:30 pm at the Fairview Community Center.

If you are interested in joining this advisory council, please contact Janell B. Wampler, RASP Program Coordinator, at 651-604-3522 or email.
