Welcome to our Winter/Spring 2015 Semester!
As the new Director of Continuing and Summer Education, I am excited to welcome new and returning community members to our LifeLearn program. Continuing Education in West Hartford believes that lifelong learning contributes to personal fulfillment and positive community engagement. Our LifeLearn program offers a wide variety of educational opportunities for residents and neighboring community members at every stage of life. Adult Education academic offerings range from Citizenship and English language instruction to General Education Development (GED) preparation classes. Adult Enrichment offers dynamic learning opportunities in technology, the arts, home and gardening, languages, personal development and much, much more. In addition to local nature and outdoor experiences, day and overnight interstate trips and guided tours offer rich education and adventure. Summer learning and year-round enrichment options are available for preK- 12 students to keep them mentally and physically active.
Our LifeLearn catalog is accessible online at whlifelearn.org. Our website allows for easy navigation and online registration at whlifelearn.org. For your convenience, our office also accepts registrations by phone, fax, mail or in person.
We dedicate this edition of the LifeLearn catalog to my predecessor, David Downes who in retirement, continues to exemplify the characteristics of a strong community advocate who is passionate about learning new things.
We invite you to join our team as we seek to build a community of engaged lifelong learners.
