The Wonder Community of Lifelong Learning is a lifelong learning program where members meet curious people, share their passions and talents, and learn new things. Several workshops a month provide members the opportunity to learn unique skills, understand topics of interest or explore new places.
The Wonder Community of Lifelong Learning is supported by the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research to be a community-based education platform that propels multi-generational learning.
