About Us

The North Carolina Senior Center Alliance (NCSCA) is a program section of the North Carolina Association on Aging. 

The goal of the NCSCA is to provide a statewide organization for senior center professionals to advocate for senior centers, network and collaborate on common issues, share information, co-market initiatives, and provide for additional staff training and development.  

Member Benefits

 If you work with seniors or manage a senior center, you can benefit from membership to the Alliance by becoming a member of the only state organization for aging professionals. 

When you join, you will instantly be connected to a state network of others who want to succeed in their field. 



Led by a group of experienced advocates, Alliance members are afforded opportunities to influence public policy and the allocation of resources for senior centers.

Marketing to the right audience is key to the success of your center. The alliance marketing team will equip you with tools to showcase your center.

Special Projects

The Special Projects team is dedicated to seeking out initiatives that enhance senior center operations.


This group of people work to collect applications and payment confirmations for centers wanting to be a part of the alliance. They also help to manage the listserv.


The key to success in any field is adequate training. Training is provided through various opportunities. Mentoring is offered to members who would like to be matched with a seasoned Senior Center professional.
