ALI, a non-profit organization in Chelsea, MI, plans a wide range of educational courses to meet the interests and requests of our adult learners for winter/spring and fall terms. As always, our experienced instructors create a relaxed learning environment where students can ask questions, share experiences or just sit and listen. And there is no homework!
2015 Winter/Spring Courses
There are many exciting courses being offered in the winter/spring semester. Course topics include literature, science, nature and travelogues. If you like art history/culture see Journeys through Western Civilization. You might also look at Utopian Societies, a U.S. history of 1830 -1840s.

Courses being offered with our partners, the Chelsea District Library and the Chelsea Senior Center are FREE but you must pre-register. The course description in the catalog will explain how to register for a free course.
ALI would not be possible without our volunteers. To continue to providing these courses we need volunteers. We have openings for officers starting in 2015 and on our board of directors and committees including AudioVisual, PR, Tech and Web. So if you have enjoyed the courses, please consider volunteering.
