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 participation in The Older Adult Learning Community 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
Your Choice: Virtual or In-Person
The Older Adult Learning Community held our first semester of virtual learning in summer 2020. We offered 31 classes by email and Zoom video conference and more than 90 students signed up. Class enrollments and attendance were consistently high. People appreciated the convenience of attending from home and the savings on gas. Maybe you'd like to continue attending remotely this fall. You can! See our course book for classes that meet via Zoom or email.
On the other hand, you may be "Zoomed out" and want to get back to meeting with your friends at TOALC in person. You can do that too! Unless otherwise indicated in the course book, most classes will meet in person and indoors at TOALC. We meet at the East Stroudsburg Presbyterian Church at 55 Smith St., East Stroudsburg.
If you want to join in-person classes but do not feel comfortable participating in person, please contact TOALC to explore the possibility of “attending” via Zoom or telephone.
