Based in Chelsea, Michigan, the Adult Learners Institute provides a diverse selection of quality community-based learning experiences and camaraderie for adults in western Washtenaw County. ALI is a Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) affiliated with the LLI Resource Network at RoadScholar, a group of hundreds of similar organizations. We conduct our programs in cooperation with Washtenaw Community College.
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!
News & Events
The 2019 Fall Kick Off will be held on Tuesday August 13 at 10:00 am at Silver Maples in Chelsea. Save the date. More details about program will be shortly posted.
Another successful season has come to a close. This spring we had a total of 408 course registrations for classes that ranged from the Appalachians to Wildflowers. Thanks to all our instructors, volunteers, students, and Board members for contributing to the ongoing success of Chelsea Adult Learners!
I also want to mention a new initiative that the ALI Board has begun. We hired D&B Marketing to help us begin the process of making plans for the future of our organization. This is an exciting and dynamic time for us, and we are looking for ideas, volunteers, and Board members. If you are interested in getting more involved, we’d love to hear from you.
