These talks have several goals: First, to help our membership reconnect and begin learning together again following our extended break since mid-March; second, to help us become more comfortable with the online format, which is our reality for now; and finally, to begin thinking about appealing new ideas and topics we might offer. We now know that many local groups in our age group are meeting via Zoom or something similar until it is safe to meet in person and we are looking not just to “make do” by using it but to maybe find new possibilities with it.
WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?
To be INSPIRED,
PARTNERS IN LEARNING (PIL) was established in the Grand Bend area in 2005 to address the desire for learning opportunities for mature citizens of our community. By tapping into the impressive store of expertise available in the area, Partners in Learning provides relevant and novel courses for healthy mental and social stimulation in a welcoming atmosphere.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
- You will be able to share with other PIL members what you have learned and experienced during your lifetime.
- You can enjoy special learning opportunities available in a friendly, stimulating and relaxed atmosphere.

WHERE DOES THIS TAKE PLACE?
Join us at the newly upgraded Huron Shores United Church at 25 Main Street in Grand Bend.
WHAT IS GOING ON?
Courses are offered through the fall, winter and spring. Different types of programs appeal to different learning styles – participatory peer learning, discussion groups and activity based. Courses meet for one and a half hours on Monday for five week periods. PIL course moderators are a mix of retired educators, professionals and community members – all willing to volunteer by facilitating the programs.
Come and join with us. Learn, share your knowledge, and enjoy the association of interesting people in your community.
