August 2022 Update

Here’s an outline for the fall program. We are going back to our roots and offering seven sessions of Socrates Café starting Monday, September 19th and continuing every second week. Participants pick the topics and the discussion is respectful, but lively. Current issues in the news usually get aired.

More detail of a Socrates Café get-together can be found HERE.

Life Long Learning is for everyone and new members are needed! While we have a strong core group, new “blood” is required to inject new ideas and innovation to our programs and to fill leadership positions.

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 experiences 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.
  • You will be able to have social interaction with other PIL members during classes and other organizational activities.
  • Become a part of the Partners in Learning organization that was created specifically to meet the lifelong educational interests and/or needs of mature adults.

WHERE DOES THIS TAKE PLACE?

WHAT IS GOING ON?

Learning events 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. We meet for one and a half hours on Monday. PIL session 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.
