Diakon Living & Learning After 50!

IMPORTANT Dec. 17 NOTICE: All Diakon Living & Learning events and classes are currently suspended through Jan. 4 because of a rise in COVID-19 cases in the community. Check here for updates. We apologize for any inconvenience.

When the situation improves, classes will be listed. You also can visit our Facebook page for details. 


Diakon Living & Learning offers courses, classes, events, trips and workshops designed exclusively for the active older adult in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. All of our courses and programs are geared for those 50 and older—although everyone is welcome—who desire to ...

  • Discover their creative side
  • Explore the latest in health and wellness trends
  • Delve into modern-day computer and related technologies
  • Meet new people with common interests
  • Enrich life!

If you have never participated in our programs before, we hope you will join us!

We develop our courses, classes and special events to appeal to a broad range of interests and abilities. If you’ve already experienced one or more of our programs, we appreciate your continued interest.

To see all that we offer, please view our 2020 fall catalog. For your convenience, you can download and print our registration form. (links on existing site)

In addition, we are always looking for new ideas for programs that provide enjoyment, socialization, learning and networking opportunities, as well as making new friends. Consider us a Facebook-style connection without the computer!

If you have an interest not covered in one of our programs or courses—or if you have a special talent or hobby you would like to share with others—please contact us with your idea. 

And if you would like to volunteer with any program, we have many opportunities to do so. See our volunteer page for more information including various important documents.
