Lifelong Learning

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!   

2016 Fall Courses

The Fall Courses page lists the 2016 courses as well as links to fall catalog and registration form. Registration will be by mail only for the Fall courses. 

Courses will begin in September.  Topics include history, musical theater, science, food, art, nature and travelogues including:

  • Antiques and Collectables: Antiques Roadshow-styled class about your valued possessions
  • Contempory China: Ethnicity and Religion in modern China
  • Playwright's Art:  learn about dramatic techniques in your favorite plays
  • State Symbols: see wonderful photography and hear great tales about State's birds, trees, cookies, drink and toys.

Two free courses are being offered - one each with our partners, the Chelsea Senior Center and the Chelsea District Library. See Fall Course page for how to register.

ALI would not be possible without our volunteers. To continue to providing these courses we need volunteers.  We have openings for officers and on our board of directors and committees including AudioVisual, PR, Tech and Web.  So if you have enjoyed the courses, please consider volunteering.   For more information call 734-433-1000, ext. 7358, to leave a message.
