Take a Class For The Fun of It!

Welcome to LEARN Jacksonville’s Winter 2020 Course Catalog!


As we enter 2020, start the new year off right by exploring a new hobby, gaining a new skill, and participating in lifelong learning. Within these pages you will find a wide variety of classes that appeal to every interest. Make this the year that you achieve your New Year's Resolutions!


Our new series, Back to Basics, featuring classes that explore natural skills for sustainability was a huge hit last term! This term we introduce two other classes to the series, Spring Cleaning the Natural Way (p. 4) and Fundamentals of Natural Personal Care Products (p. 4) Focused on teaching you how to transition to using toxin-free, homemade products for your home and body, these classes will be taught by our new instructor Alexis Peterson, who is one of 14 entrepreneurs selected to be in the first cohort at the new Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.


Are you prepared to take the first step in reaching your financial goals? Understanding your finances doesn't have to be scary. Let us help you with Financial Wellness for Beginners (p. 8), College Financial Planning for Parents (p. 8), and How to Pay Your Student Debt Loan More Effectively (p. 9) Focusing on some of the most important financial issues facing millennials currently, these newest Money Matters classes will help ease the emotional stress and financial burden caused by lack of planning.


Enjoy the beautiful Florida spring weather while learning hands-on how to take stunning photos! Our Photo Safari offerings now include a Photo Safari at the Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens (p. 11) and Photo Safari Cruise with Florida Water Tours (p. 11) These unique in-the-field workshops lead by our photography expert, John Reed, will allow you to capture gorgeous photos of nature and wildlife like a pro!


Those are just a few of the exciting new opportunities available through LEARN Jacksonville. I look forward to seeing you in a class soon and happy learning!
