Learning is ForEver (L.I.F.E)


What is the L.I.F.E. program?


L.I.F.E.-Learning Is ForEver is committed to providing stimulating educational and enrichment opportunities for individuals who share a common dedication to the enjoyment of continued learning for growth and fulfillment.
L.I.F.E. committee members determine the curriculum and recruit instructors and facilitators. The program is sponsored by the Board of Commissioners for St. Mary’s County through the Department of Aging & Human Services and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). Who can participate?
The program encourages participation without regard to previous education levels. Registrations are taken on a first come, first serve basis when registration opens.

Who are our teachers?

Based on the concept of peer teaching, a majority of instructors/facilitators come from knowledgeable individuals who are willing to share their expertise and experiences. Guest speakers and community leaders are periodically invited to speak on subjects of interest.


When and Where?

Classes are held at various locations around the county. Our locations and class offerings will expand as our program grows. L.I.F.E. classes are held in the spring and the fall.

What does it cost?

Class fees are kept as minimal as possible.

If you are interested in planning and organizing a local trip or tour for the L.I.F.E. Program, we’d like to hear from you.
Volunteers are needed who can handle all the logistics of a tour from start to finish. Mentors are also needed to accompany tours.
