Adventures in Learning

Adventures in Learning offers college-type classes and cultural enrichment. Each is focused on helping older adults continue to learn, discover, and grow. Experience one of these classes and it’s impossible not to see and feel the incredible enthusiasm for lifelong learning attendees share.

Sessions are led by class instructors who themselves are mostly retired older adults or community experts who bring their special interests and backgrounds to enrich lives and keep minds strong and vibrant. Each session is developed by a local committee of Shepherd’s Center volunteers based on the interests and needs of older adults in each community.

Subjects cover an increasingly varied assortment of topics for all interests: computer and technology, finance, literature, creative writing, cultural appreciation, religion, “how-to,” current events, historical events and figures, foreign languages, and much more. These outstanding courses and topics – coupled with unforgettable content and camaraderie. Classes are open to older adults in the community – and all are welcomed!
