Adventures in Learning

Adventures in Learning is geared toward mid-life and older adults who want to continue learning, become engaged in the community, and make new friends.



Adventures in Learning is a volunteer driven program with a multifaceted curriculum.

Participants meet 40 Fridays a year at
Central United Methodist Church, 5144 Oak Street, Kansas City, MO.

Curriculum changes quarterly.

Participants can choose from 10 classes offered every week.

At noon, participants enjoy lunch together at the Noon Forum, which features outstanding speakers, guest lecturers and noted entertainers.

Cost of the Adventures in Learning program is only $20.00 for a 10-week session of classes. Catered lunch may be purchased for $7.00 or you can bring your own lunch to the Noon Forum.

Blood pressure checks are available the 3rd Friday of the month by the Visiting Nurse Association for no charge.
