Senior Adventures 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.
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.
There are three terms each year (Winter, Spring, and Fall). Programs
are conducted two days a week and run for seven to eight consecutive weeks. To download or print the current term's brochure
