The Power of Lifelong Learning or Learning in Retirement
New Adventures in Learning is an Institute for Learning in Retirement organization for mature adults, who share a curiosity and desire for learning. New Adventures is a membership learning organization affiliated with Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) through the Sun Lakes Center (SLC). The mission of New Adventures in association with the CGCC/SLC is to meet the educational needs and interests of the growing number of mature adults in the Southeast Valley.
New Adventures seeks to meet its goals by recognizing and utilizing the unique experiences, capabilities, and diversity of mature adults, and thereby building a self-governing and self-sustaining community of learners, that becomes an integral part of the Maricopa Community Colleges district.
New Adventures provides an opportunity for intellectual and cultural growth for persons 45+, offering opportunities to explore the limitless array of topics geared to their interests and talents. Learning occurs in a pleasant social atmosphere in study groups conducted by one's peers. Presenters, operating under the auspices of a New Adventures' facilitator, share their interest and expertise with the study group members. All participants working together create a unique educational opportunity that emphasizes learning, personal satisfaction, and an increased understanding of the subject matter.
