About OWLL

Lexington’s Older, Wiser, Lifelong Learners program (O.W.L.L) was started in 2013, as a result of the Friends of the Lexington Council on Aging committee’s vision for an affordable, accessible, inclusive, collaborative community-based Lifelong Learning Program to serve Lexington seniors aged 60 and over.

Now in its tenth year, the program began with a monetary grant from the Dana Home Foundation, four courses and 86 registrations. O.W.L.L. is now self-sustaining, sponsored by the Friends of the Lexington Council on Aging in partnership with the Lexington Council on Aging.

Multiple course offerings on wide range of topics

The program now offers six or seven courses three times a year with more than 500 registrations. Over the years, an eclectic variety of courses has been offered, with topics ranging from Love, Legacies, and Lear to African political history, from classical music to nuclear energy. Courses are now located primarily in the Lexington Community Center.
