It’s not a well-kept secret! Third Age Learning Guelph offers stimulating and enlightening presentations designed to appeal to a broad range of interests in our community.
Without our volunteers, our high calibre and entertaining lectures would not take place.
We are in need of more members!
And as with any volunteer opportunity the personal benefits are endless! It’s an opportunity to network, share your skills and expertise to help bring resources to your peers, and socialize … just the tip of the iceberg!
Please consider joining the following committees; we’d love to have you on board.
