Amava Launches “Amava Learns” to Deliver Purpose and Connection Through Continuing Education Opportunities
Includes Live Online Classes for Personal and Professional Development
Amava, the leading platform connecting a new generation of empty nesters and active retirees with jobs, volunteer opportunities and unique experiences, has expanded its offerings to include hundreds of new instructor-led classes and self-paced courses.
Many Amava members are Baby Boomers and Gen Xers interested in learning new skills, pursuing interests and hobbies or just challenging themselves. In a recent Amava poll of more than 175,000 households, 60% of the respondents chose “learning something new” as a top priority. Besides the obvious benefit of attaining knowledge, continuing education is a great way to expand the mind, find new purpose and establish new social connections.
“Lifelong learning is a fundamental part of the lives of our members,” says Mark Silverman, CEO of Amava. “We want to make it as easy as possible for them to find quality classes and other learning experiences that meet their evolving needs at the best price.”
Amava’s initial offerings include classes that help members extend or reboot their careers and classes that enable them to pursue their interests. Popular classes include learning to jam on the guitar, cook like Carla Hall, give a great speech, write the perfect resume, run a nonprofit and many more.
Many courses offer live online 1:1 and group interactions. Offline offerings are currently limited due to Covid-19, however, new courses are being added every week with offline courses at local colleges and other locations to be added as social distancing restrictions subside.
