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. 

The Autumn session of classes offers both virtual Zoom topics plus in-person sessions, for one flat fee…it’s a deal!  Classes begin Sept. 13th…so register now (click here)

A Few Basic Facts About AIL:

  • There are typically three semesters/sessions each year during the Winter, Spring and Autumn  
  • During the past year and planned in the months ahead, we converted many classes to the Zoom platform which brings in new, out-of-town professors for great variety and interactive learning. 
  • Our full semesters will offer In-Person classes on Thursdays (at 9:30 or 11:00 am) when we are allowed to use church facilities.   
  • Each semester has the same flat fee for 9+ topics, that’s just $45 for 6 weeks. 
  • All instructors are volunteers, sharing their time and knowledge with us. Many are retired professors, community professionals, or experienced craftspeople. 
  • 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, Mysterious Murder cases, Health & Science Updates, History, Astronomy, Exploring Sciences, Contemporary Art, or Issues in Current Events? Have you thought of exploring genealogy, making fresh cheeses at home, or writing/understanding poetry?

” I am impressed with the variety of offerings, the pricing, the level of expertise of the presenters, and the camaraderie of the students. The Zoom facilitators know their way around the online classrooms and make everyone feel welcome.”
