Programs

Together we create community, and NN programs are all about connection. Socialize, share common interests, learn something new. Don’t see what you’re looking for? We are always looking for new ways to engage and connect. If you have an idea, contact us at 413-341-0160. As with everything NN, Programs are free. All are welcome. Spread the word.

Community Forum

The NN Community Forum is designed to keep Northampton Neighbors connected, informed, and engaged through conversations with local leaders. Members receive email notifications about upcoming events and we list them on our calendar.

Events

In addition to ongoing programs, NN hosts a number of events throughout the year to connect us. Members receive email notifications about upcoming social events and we list them on our calendar.

Interest Groups

Northampton Neighbors Interest Groups are formed and run by and for members. Hikers, walkers, readers, gardeners, and others come together to explore and share our passions. Join an NN Interest Group or start one of your own. The sky’s the limit! Learn more about Interest Groups here.


NN Socials are get-togethers with no agenda. We simply relax, enjoy the company of old friends, and meet new neighbors. Members receive email notifications about upcoming social events and we list them on our calendar.

Monthly Insights

NN Monthly Insights is an education series providing practical information about valuable resources and relevant topics for older adults in our community.  Members receive email notifications about upcoming events and we list them on our calendar.

Neighborhood Circles

Neighborhood Circles are a way for members to connect with those who live closest to them. A local official may share city happenings, or a speaker from the neighborhood may bring a story to tell. There is always time for questions and conversation. Find your Neighborhood Circle here.

NN 101: Where Do I Fit In?

There’s lots to do and for you at Northampton Neighbors. But sometimes it’s hard to know how to find what you’re looking for or get the help you need. That’s where “NN 101” comes in. We hope you’ll join us. Learn more here.

 Sandwiches (or Snacks) and Stories

Sharing stories is a powerful way to make connections, learn from others’ experiences, inspire, and be inspired. Sandwiches and Stories is a monthly lunchtime gathering on Zoom while Snacks and Stories meets later in the day and in person. At both, neighbors tell and hear stories based on suggested topics.  Members receive email notifications about upcoming events and we list them on our calendar.

Speaker Series

Northampton Neighbors' lively Speaker Series began in 2018, guided by a commitment to present topics of particular interest to older people as well as those intended for a broader audience.  Learn more here

NN Laptop Program

Do you have a laptop you no longer need? We will wipe your old laptop clean, making it ready to give to someone who needs it. Do you need a laptop? Based on availability, we will deliver a laptop to you and provide some basic instructions for you to get started. More Information.

 UMass/NN Storytelling Project: Connecting Across Generations

NN members are paired with upper-level undergraduates in a UMass course about connection, belonging, and public health. Over the course of a semester, each duo gets to know one another, largely through sharing stories about their own lives on Zoom. The course ends with partners recording interviews with one another on a topic of each person’s choosing. Listen to interviews from previous semesters, and learn more about how to participate.
NN Singalongs

Our singalongs help members find joy in singing favorite songs.  Learn more here.
