What is LLI?

The Lifelong Learning Institute in Chesterfield is
Join
a member-supported organization designed to meet the educational, fitness and social enrichment needs of adults age 50 and "better."

The Institute is a learning community of peers who are committed to ongoing education and their own intellectual development. 

Members want to stay current, curious about the world of ideas, and involved with their own learning. The Institute develops and offers daytime courses, lectures, activities and special events on a wide range of topics; there are no exams, no credits and no college degrees required.

In addition to the academic-type courses, we offer fitness opportunities, social activities such as lunches, trips, cards and games and the arts.

How?
