Exploring New Concepts in Retirement Education(ENCORE) is a volunteer organization for retired people ages 50+ who want to continue learning! This program offers short-term courses, which are often lead by ENCORE members and cover a wide range of topics, including science, health, art, music, literature, history, writing, religion and current events.

No tests, No grades, No homework

…just plenty of enjoyment, enrichment, and friendship! ENCORE provides life-long learning opportunities for older students. It is sponsored by Clatsop Community College but is run entirely by its members.
