In Learning (SAIL) of Melbourne
is an interfaith, not-for-profit organization that serves senior adults (50+) throughout Brevard County. Local churches and
synagogues sponsor this organization and some provide a campus where these learning opportunities take place.
Participants have fun learning Spanish, studying history, painting in art
class, discussing current events and foreign affairs, writing novels, exercising, playing games and much more! The instruction
for all of these activities and classes are mostly seniors themselves; using the valuable skills that they
have cultivated throughout their lifetime.
The genius of the program is that it is a ministry by and with older adults
rather than just a ministry to them. The participants feel a sense of ownership as they set their own course. SAIL rejects the myth that senior citizens are frail, lonely and dependent, sliding
down the hill to the end of life. People of all faiths work together in SAIL to help older
adults sustain and celebrate life!
The primary purpose
of SAIL is to enrich the later years with opportunities for service to others, self-expression,
meaningful work, and close friendships. An equally important goal is to help older adults remain independent in their own
living situation as long as they choose.
