Adult Community Programs

Our mission at ICC is simple but inspiring: “Through learning, minds change. We believe by changing minds, we can change the world.

We at ACP support that mission by offering non-credit workshops that promote lifelong learning so that community members of various ages and backgrounds can experience the joy of knowledge, curiosity, and community-building without the worry of grades, tests, and papers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Adult Community Programs?

Adult Community Programs are (noncredit) workshops and programs on a variety of topics, designed to give the community an opportunity to learn new skills and interests in a fun environment. Topics range from art to collectibles and antiques, computers, gardening, crafts, cooking, film, personal growth, fitness, home, and special interests. There are also day trips and special events. Unless otherwise stated, programs are designed for adults 18 and over.

Where are Adult Community Programs held?
