The Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) is a unique opportunity to enhance your life through learning both within and outside classroom environments. An academic cooperative run by members who volunteer their time and talents, ALL offers courses, group discussions, presentations, field trips, and social events conceived and conducted by members. The programs encompass a diverse range of topics, including ecology, literature, history, religion, science, current events, photography, philosophy, gardening, and more. Courses are held on the CBMM campus and at nearby locations.

HELP WANTED: CLASS FACILITATOR OPPORTUNITY!

Most courses require a class facilitator… someone who will report early to each class to insure the proper arrangement of the chairs and tables, adjust the heat/air conditioning (if necessary), take attendance, and assist the instructor in operating the audio-visual equipment. Would you be willing to do that in your class(es)? If so, contact Allison Speight at aspeight@cbmm.org.
