Thank You for Another Great Semester!

We’re thankful you joined us this past spring. We value your commitment to lifelong learning and the inspiration it brings to us all. Our mission wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our members, instructors, volunteers, donors, and sponsors who keep us engaged, enriched, and enlightened every semester.

Please join us October 7th—November 8th for our fall 2024 semester. We can’t wait to continue our journey into learning with you!

New! Temporary Volunteer Position Available

We’re growing our Instructor Support Team, and we have a spot just for you. Do you want a behind-the-scenes ILR experience this fall semester? If so, we would be delighted to have you on the team! Don’t worry, we will provide all the training you need – no experience necessary.

Generous Thanks

ILR continues to fulfill its mission, thanks to the generous support from individual donors and businesses serving as sponsors or advertisers. We are delighted to announce that Berkeley Square is once again sponsoring ILR's spring semester and will host an exclusive tour of their beautiful Hamilton community for our members and non-members. Tour sign-ups will take place during ILR's normal semester registration. Since 1997, our focus has been on creating a positive impact in the lives of lifelong learners within our community and beyond. We express our sincere gratitude to Berkeley Square and all our supporters for placing their trust in us as we strive to make a meaningful difference.
