Doing some research about learning opportunities in later life, I came across this excellent article. It provides learning programs available in each of the 50 states. Although most are not “free” you can attend and take most of the courses for a reduced or limited cost. It also offers a great way to make new friends and to add to your ‘Encore Portfolio’ of things to do. Want to learn something new by going back to school, check out these options in your state.
