Seniors & Scholars

We are proud to present our Seniors & Scholars Program designed for adults 55 and over.  We offer seniors the opportunity to establish friendships, enjoy informative programs, attend outstanding events, serve as mentors to students and volunteer with the Pinellas Education Foundation.

Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.” What better way to give than to get involved with the Seniors & Scholars program and have fun in the process!
