Active Aging, Inc. and Allegheny College Partner in Lifelong Learning Institute

September 2, 2014 - Active Aging, Inc. and Allegheny College have partnered in a grant program to form a Lifelong Learning Institute. The grant was obtained through an initiative made available by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging. The purpose of the institute is to support the continuing pursuit of knowledge to build skills, explore new ideas, enhance understanding and enrich lives.

Course topics are being selected based on the interests of today’s baby boomers and beyond. A course catalog is being developed based on preferred topics.

There will be 22 sessions held during the fall semester and the same number again the following semester. Each session will be 90 minutes to two hours in length.

Non-credit classes will be taught by Allegheny College faculty and staff. Student mentors will be available for assistance. Programs will be presented at each of Crawford County’s six senior community centers beginning in September 2014 through April 2015. Afternoon sessions will be held from 3-5 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and/or Thursday. Evening sessions will take place on the same days from 5:30-7:30 p.m.. Centers are located in Meadville, Linesville, Cambridge Springs, Canadohta Lake, Guys Mills and Titusville.

There is no cost to enroll. Enrollment will be limited to those who preregister. Participants will receive a certificate of completion. Select transportation may be available through Crawford Area Transportation Authority (CATA).
