Boca group spreads its wings to national experts

“People are always surprised that this feisty lifelong learning group has so much content and depth.” That’s a quote from “grow your brain,” Institute for Learning in Retirement’s executive director Carol Lazerick.

Turns out Zoom was a boon to this Boca group that not only books local speakers with expertise. Now they have a much broader reach.

Q: How did that happen?

A: When we were at the Boca Raton Community Center, we had 18 or 19 classes a week. We were there for four years. When we went on Zoom in March, that allowed us to reach out internationally. A lot of these speakers are homebound, too, so they’re willing. We are able to tap into speakers we would not have been able to get in person.
