New adventures in learning are available for Idahoans 50 and older in the Boise area, thanks to the New Knowledge Adventures program at Idaho State University and its collaboration with AARP and the Treasure Valley YMCA. The program offers education, exploration and fellowship in a noncompetitive environment.
AARP Idaho is encouraging members to sign up for classes, which range from academic subjects to hands-on activities such as gardening, winemaking and recreational pastimes. The noncredit courses are mostly free and are taught by professors or volunteers.
In addition, AARP is helping to develop a course catalog for the fall term—and is seeking volunteers to teach classes in their fields of expertise. Members can also join a curriculum committee to work on policies and types of classes offered.
