Life Long Learning

Life Long Learning Classes, Clubs & Groups

One of our goals at Perennial Parks is to provide Life Long Learning opportunitiess to keep people mentally and physically active. Classes offered will vary based on interest and instructor availability. Volunteer instructors with a passion for any subject are always welcome! Please contact the Health & Wellness Coordinator if you are interested in starting a class or club.

In partnership with MDHHS-GetSetUp: 

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is now offering FREE virtual classes to the aging population in your state. Our online classes are live, interactive, and are taught by seniors for seniors. We help older adults overcome loneliness and isolation (especially during Covid) and teach topics that help them become socially engaged and mentally active. And we have 150 classes to choose from, many of which are offered on a daily basis.

Through our partnership with the entire state of Michigan, you are now able to offer these classes to the older adults in your area completely free of charge.
