  • Many of our courses are led by LIFE volunteers. These "Facilitated Courses" are an excellent opportunity for members who are seeking leadership opportunities to prepare and direct a course;
  • class participants may also be asked to research and present a topic.

    We also offer "Lecture Courses", which are given by a professor or acknowledged expert in the field. Lecture Courses usually include a question and answer period, some discussion and may include a reading list.
