Lifetime Learners Institute (LLI) is a non-profit organization of adults over age 50, interested in lifelong learning. The organization’s purpose is to offer interesting non-credit educational courses developed and taught by LLI instructors on subjects such as history, current events, literature, humanities, art, music, science, nature, theater, movies and more. Our collaborative classroom environment provides members with the opportunity to engage with other individuals sharing similar interests and to establish new friendships. Affiliated with Norwalk Community College, LLI believes that growth, through continuing education and social engagement, is the secret to staying vital.
LLI offers roughly 40 courses each Spring and Fall, as well shorter Summer and Winter Sessions, all taught by LLI instructors. LLI’s more than 800 members come from all over Fairfield and Westchester counties. LLI is run by member volunteers, plus one paid part-time office manager.
Norwalk Community College gives us a home, provides us with offices, meeting rooms, classrooms, services, use of the Baker library and Wellness Center, help in many forms, advice when asked for, and the invaluable prestige of a large sheltering institute – making us feel a part of the College. Our members volunteer services to NCC, such as mentoring, library assistance, rush mailings, and participation in fundraising for the NCC Foundation.
