The COLLEGIUM for Lifelong Learning
COLLEGIUM for Lifelong Learning is a membership organization created in 2004 under the aegis of Mainstream by Community College volunteers seeking to combine serious study and social exchange.

Each COLLEGIUM semester features courses in a variety of topics, all led by exceptional volunteers. Some leaders are veterans of the classroom, and some are professionals sharing their expertise for the first time. Participants  are encouraged to engage in classroom discussion, and the schedule allows for informal discussion between sessions and during breaks. Collegium is held on Wednesdays and Fridays in spring and fall semesters, and on Wednesdays in winter.

For more information about Collegium, including the next session, and registration information, click here.

Mainstream Community partners with Westchester County Department of Senior Programs & Services Body Movement and Livable Communities programs.
