Brain Fitness – Right Here!
Learning is a health-promoting entity. Learning involves structural, chemical, and functional changes in the brain helping students stay mentally active, curious, and involved. Not only that, the social connections made with other students foster a sense of community and togetherness.

Becoming A Volunteer Instructor
Older adults are seeking not only to live longer but to live more active, meaningful lives. Participation in a life long learning course can produce significant benefits for older adults. From the days of LaFarge Life Long Learning to today, the School Sisters of St. Francis sponsored, Center for Enrichment and Life Long Learning, has relied on the passion of others from the community to share their interests with students. Volunteering as an instructor and sharing information about a topic that you enjoy will make a difference. Contact us today for more information.
