The Most Affordable (and fun) Continuing Education Classes



New Knowledge Adventures (NKA) is a lifelong continuing education program for older adults designed to offer exceptional learning, exploration and
fellowship opportunities in a comfortable and non-competitive academic surrounding.

Supported by Idaho State University, AARP Idaho and the Treasure Valley Family YMCA, NKA represents the most affordable learning opportunity for the 50 plus in the Treasure Valley. For just $35 participants can sign up for an unlimited number of classes.

“New Knowledge Adventures is a lifelong learning opportunity that takes place in a fun and social environment,” said Cathy McDougall, AARP Outreach Director. “These courses are designed by and for the 50 plus and draw upon the experience and wisdom of our volunteer instructors.”

In conjunction with university staff, volunteer instructors provide leadership and complete management of all courses and curriculums. Volunteers develop engaging classes based upon member interests, talents and feedback. Courses include art, history, field trips, games, film study, cooking and much more!

“Thanks to our volunteers we’re able to offer an incredible and diverse list of courses this spring,” said McDougall.

Registration for the Spring 2018 semester begins February 20th.
