To provide a diverse population of mature adults with varied opportunities for lifelong learning – seminars, lectures, cultural events and social activities – in a pleasant, accessible environment at a reasonable cost.
An independent, not-for-profit, peer-run, adult continuing education organization in Providence, Rhode Island. Our model is collaborative learning. Peer coordinators develop the syllabus and facilitate class sessions. Class participation fosters a sense of community, with discussion often continuing over lunch or coffee. There are opportunities for members to attend cultural and social events, museums, theater, concerts, lectures.
Daytime classes meet once a week usually for ten weeks for two hours. We have developed partnerships with multiple sites: Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School, Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre, Trinity Repertory Company, and Temple Beth-El. Courses include a wide-range of topics and interests: art, theater, music, literature, history, science, current events, economics.
