Celebrate Encore Learning’s 20th Anniversary!

We began in 2002 when a handful of intrepid and visionary seniors launched Arlington Learning in Retirement (ALRI).  ALRI offered an all-volunteer program of college level (noncredit) courses to people over 50. As membership grew, we increased the number of classes and added clubs for members pursuing similar interests (bridge, cinema, kayaking, tech, travel, etc.). We also developed a popular series of Special Events. 

In 2012, ALRI changed its name to Encore Learning. Volunteers powered the organization, with instructors, board members, committee chairs, and Class Aides dedicating their imagination, time, and energy to help Encore Learning flourish.

This year, Encore Learning celebrates its 20th anniversary! All members can be proud of our dynamic organization that annually offers 60 courses, 50 special events, and innumerable club activities to nearly 900 enthusiastic members. We hope you will join us for our anniversary celebration on September 12, 2022.
