ADVENTURES IN LEARNING
Adventures in Learning offers extended learning for older adults. Quarterly educational programs help seniors keep active minds through learning and fellowship. Sessions are held on Mondays at Providence United Methodist Church. The fall, winter and spring sessions are six (6) weeks long and provide a general session, morning class, lunch and afternoon class. The summer session is four (4) weeks long and provides a general session and morning session.
Travel Adventures offers about 12 trips a year to locations in the southeast. “On the Go” day trips to local spots are a new offering from Shepherd’s Center. Trips are designed by senior volunteers with older adults in mind.
In collaboration with Southminster Retirement Community, Shepherd’s Center volunteers teach a variety of Computer Classes including a 4-week introductory course, eBay, File Management, Excel, Social Marketing and Skype. New classes are added based on interests of adults and what’s new in cyberspace.
The Pinnacle Club is an extension of AIL, and involves an overnight trip for intense learning sessions on a particular topic. The inaugural trip, September 13-15, 2017, will focus on “Art of Appalachia”.
