Events Calendar


The Older Adult Learning Center is a community organization dedicated to the philosophy that learning should be a lifelong endeavor and to the belief that continuous educational pursuits in retirement contribute to the quality of life.

We are an independent community organization that offers a number of diversified courses geared to the interests of its members covering such topics as art, history, finance, health, sports, philosophy and writing. The courses offered are limited only to the interest and imagination of its members.

The benefits of participants in The Older Adult Learning Center include:

  • The sheer joy of learning without the pressure associated with term papers and exams
  • The opportunity to interact with people who share a commonality of interests
  • The opportunity to explore unfamiliar subjects and broaden horizons
  • The opportunity to realize the unique satisfaction that exploring new ideas and experiences generates

Membership and Fees

The Older Adult Learning Center is open to people of all ages and requires no specific educational background. Membership is only $45 per session with sessions for Winter/Spring, Summer and Fall. This fee allows students to enroll in an unlimited number of courses. Courses offered each semester are selected by a membership curriculum committee from suggestions submitted by our members.

Where applicable and noted within course descriptions, a modest fee for course materials may be charged. All courses and activities are held during daylight hours. Qualified volunteers who are proficient in their chosen subject provide instruction. Additional Community Lifelong Learning Activities and programs are offered at both the Monroe County Loder Center and the Western Pocono Community Library.
