Who We Are
Sooke Region Lifelong Learning is a volunteer organisation offering educational programs and workshops for older adults in the Sooke region. Based on the Elder College model, we provide stimulating and enjoyable learning environments which address the unique and diverse interests of participants. Programs are offered at SEAPARC Leisure Centre and at other locations in the community. Sooke Region Lifelong Learning functions as a working group under the auspices of the Sooke Region Communities Health Network (SRCHN).
Registration will begin in August after all programs have been confirmed and posted. We hope that everyone will have a safe and happy Summer and we look forward to your participation this coming Fall.

SRLL Fall 2021 Program Offerings
Due to uncertainty with COVID 19 restrictions, please be aware that some of the programs may be relocated to a face to face venue at SEAPARC. SRLL will keep you updated as the Fall starts dates approach.
Your SRLL Committee is actively planning programs for this Fall and for next Spring. As always, we will bring you a variety of programs and sessions, and a great collection of local presenters to engage your mind.
As new programs are selected we will add them to this web page.
Sooke Region Lifelong Learning is part of a growing North American network of volunteer organizations providing informal learning opportunities for adults. These groups exist under a variety of names: Elder Colleges, Institutes for Learning in Retirement, Lifelong Learning, etc. Our Sooke group began planning in Spring 2017, and offered some initial courses over Fall 2017/Winter 2018 under a “Sessions for Seniors” program run by the Sooke Age- Friendly Committee with a partial grant from the federal government’s New Horizons Program.
With meeting space, promotional help, registration assistance, and volunteer support from SEAPARC and from the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre, we were able to offer a full slate of programming for Fall 2018.
