Senior Learning Resources

Lifelong learning is, for many Seniors, an ongoing quest that encourages and supports a healthy lifestyle. Whether your interests include restoring old boats, debating politics or philosophy, running that extra mile today, googling a news item, planting the latest hybrid shrub, traveling to Beijing, enjoying the local arts scene or tasting a just-released wine varietal, there are always new things to learn.

Social, business, educational and volunteer organizations that contribute to lifelong learning abound in every community. In addition to those named on the Volunteer Opportunities page of this website, other Northwest organizations are listed below for your exploration.
