Road Scholar: Adventures in Lifelong Learning

Thursday, June 16, 7:00 pm

If you love to travel, enjoy learning new things, like to explore interesting places and meet people 
who share a love of adventure, come and learn about Road Scholar, the group that offers more than 
5,500 programs each year in 150 countries worldwide. Volunteer Road Scholar Ambassador 
JILL SWAIM will offer an insider's look at its adventures on Thursday June 16th at 7:00 p.m. in 
the Library’s Barth Community Room. Light refreshments will be served. Road Scholar Ambassadors 
are seasoned participants who volunteer their time to give informative and enthusiastic presentations 
about the educational travel adventures available through Road Scholar, formerly called Elderhostel, 
the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning since 1975.

Adventuresome, curious, fun... what else is there to know about Road Scholar participants?  Their learning adventures engage expert instructors, provide extraordinary access, and stimulate discourse and friendship among people for whom learning is the journey of a lifetime.  Since its inception, more than five million people have enrolled in its iconic educational adventures offered annually in countries around the world.  The Road Scholar program has made connections with educators and other local "insiders" all around the world, creating learning opportunities that show the world in a way that just can't be done alone or on a "tour." From expert-led lectures and field trips to comfortable lodgings and meals, all the details are handled, taking the worry out of the planning, so Scholars can focus on the learning experience.

Road Scholar is headquartered in Boston, Mass., with offices in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. Bring all your questions regarding this exciting travel program Thursday June 16 at 7:00 pm to Crowell Library’s Barth Community Room.
