Our Mission

To provide a diverse population of mature adults with varied opportunities for lifelong learning - seminars, lectures, cultural events and social activities - in a pleasant, accessible environment at a reasonable cost.

What is LLC?

An independent, not-for-profit, peer-run organization in Rhode Island.  Our model is collaborative learning.  Peer coordinators develop the syllabus and facilitate class sessions.  Class participation fosters a sense of community, with discussion often continuing over lunch or coffee. There are opportunities for members to attend cultural and social events, museums, theatre, concerts, lectures.

Who are our members?

Active, intellectually curious adults from many career paths. A flexible schedule and a love of learning are the only prerequisites. Members plan and participate in peer-led classes and a variety of activities that offer academic challenges.  Join us.

Where do we meet?

Daytime classes meet once a week usually for ten weeks for two hours. The majority of our courses are held at Temple Beth-El in Providence; other courses meet at the Music School and Rochambeau Public Library Branch. Courses include a wide-range of topics and interests: art, music, literature, history, science, current events, economics.
