The Academy for Lifelong Learning of Cape Cod, Inc. (“A.L.L.”) was established in 1987 as part of the Center for Successful Aging at Cape Cod Community College. In 1990, A.L.L. was “spun off” from the college and became an independent self-governing entity. In 2001 we obtained 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. Throughout our history, A.L.L. has maintained a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the college.
A.L.L. is an organization of men and women aged 50 and older that offers its members the opportunity to pursue educational interests and to expand social relationships. Volunteerism is critical to A.L.L.’s ongoing success. Members are encouraged to become class coordinators, participate on committees, work on administrative activities, or just participate in any of A.L.L.’s activities and functions.
The opportunity for social interaction is an important aspect of A.L.L. In addition to classes, the academy offers social activities and special events such as lectures and trips to theater productions and museums in the area throughout the year.
A.L.L. offers primarily academic courses in addition to several creative and “how-to” courses. Classes vary from semester to semester. The academic offerings may include courses in literature, history, philosophy, the social sciences, religion, and art appreciation and interpretation. The creative and “how-to” courses may include topics such as gardening, painting, and various other skills of interest to our membership.
Members of A.L.L. present the courses and are known as “coordinators.” These volunteers bring their personal passions, avocations, and/or their teaching experience to our classes. Some courses are traditional in structure, where coordinators have the role of teacher, while other coordinators prefer a discussion structure and act as facilitators. There are two semesters or sessions per calendar year – fall and spring. Courses offerings are generally on either a six-week or a 12-week basis. A.L.L. courses are not for academic credit with the College or elsewhere.
