Lifelong Learning

There’s no age limit to learning. That’s why our members do more than #YearnToLearn, they get out there and do it. Continuing Education classes at Portland State University. Geological field trips to the Columbia Gorge. And a woodworking shop, right here. From languages to cooking lessons, movie history to microbreweries, we’re proving that retirement has very little to do with retiring – and everything to do with doing. So visit the opera. Have a museum date. Or host a dinner party about your last trip to Barcelona. Whether you’re sharing or creating, it’s all a part of being here.
