Your Fast Track: Lifelong Learning Opportunities in Metro Denver

“The quickest way to become an old dog is to stop learning new tricks.” – John Rooney Colorado is the third best-educated state in the nation, and metro Denver ranks high in best-educated residents. We devote many resources to educating our young people. But learning is not just for the young. Many people 50+ have an unquenchable thirst to keep learning–and to teach what they know to others. Fortunately, we have options. And that is what our April Colorado Encore Network Meetup is all about–lifelong learning opportunities. Have you heard of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, or OLLI? No? Come find out. What adult learning opportunities do some of our community colleges offer? Where can you learn how to start and operate your own business? Get training that could lead to a new job? Learn how to use social media, or even create your own website? This month, Colorado Encore Network focuses on lifelong learning by bringing you together with institutions and people who offer learning opportunities suited to you. Free event. Refreshments.
