Lifelong Learning Niagara (LLN) was established in early 2015 as a not-for-profit third age learning organization managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and became incorporated in July, 2015. Sullivan Mahoney LLP generously provided legal services relating to incorporation and By-Laws.
LLN is a member of the Third Age Network, an umbrella organization with chapters throughout Ontario that offer educational programs for senior adults. TAN provided guidance and advice as we began to plan our 2015 program.
Following two promotional lectures in the spring, we offered our first series of 6 lectures in the fall of 2015 at the Armenian Community Centre in St. Catharines.
In our first year of operation, we attracted 145 members and held 3 members only events: meet the Board, a peer-to-peer workshop, and a short lecture/social time to celebrate our first year.
In January 2016, LLN received a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to evaluate the feasibility of offering a variety of innovative educational programs to unite and include seniors in the 12 municipalities comprising the Niagara region, particularly those seniors who may be isolated due to distance, physical limitations, or social or economic constraints.
By the Fall of 2017, LLN had over 200 members and over 300 people attended the Fall Lecture Series.
