Adventures In Learning is a program designed to enrich the lives and learning of older adults. Based on the national Shepherd’s Center learning model, our local AIL is a key program for seniors seeking new ideas, perspectives, subjects they want to learn, and or skills they’d like to develop. The programs are designed for seniors by a committee comprised of senior participants. Subjects and instructors will vary with each semester, but the quality and content are highly rated by our participants.

A Few Basic Facts About AIL:

  • There are three semesters/sessions each year during the Winter, Spring and Autumn  
  • Each session meets for 6 consecutive Thursdays, 9:30 am – 2:30 pm.
  • The day has 3 class periods so you select your topics; there is an inspirational moment at lunchtime plus a special presentation we call “the Forum” (community leader or unique topical speaker or a performance). 
  • Each semester, there are 15-20 classes to choose from when you register for the semester fee of just $45.
  • Lunch is available for $9 or participants may bring their own lunch.
  • All instructors are volunteers, sharing their time and knowledge with us. Many are retired professors, community professionals, or experienced crafts people. 
  • Our Winter session is held at Christ United Methodist Church (410 N. Holden Rd.) and the Spring and Fall sessions are held at First Baptist Church (1000 W. Friendly Avenue)
  • There is time for fellowship and we welcome you to meet other active seniors who enjoy learning.
  • When was the last time you studied Ancient Rome, Health & Science Updates, Bird Watching, History, Astronomy, Exploring Sciences, Contemporary Art, Issues in Current Events, or a variety of religions? Have you thought of exploring the craft of knitting, painting, or writing poetry? Or are you interested in singing, yoga, playing the uke, or just laughing?DSC_0428

We invite you to visit one of our sessions or just jump in and register for a future semester. It’s an experience that keeps many people returning year-after-year.
