About our learning cause:
There is a strong correlation between well-being and learning- especially with others. Among the benefits include autonomy and mental, emotional, social, physical, and cognitive health as well as personal growth. Learn More, Live More seeks to foster that personal well-being but also help build better relationships among people. There is correlation of better and longer-lasting relationships due to learning new things together as well as a way to team build and lessen othering. We also aim to limit social isolation by bringing experiences to those who are elderly.
Other than that, there is also research showing the benefits of bringing different age groups together including what is called the grandmother effect showing a correlation between better physical health and limits on diseases due to having a "grandmother" in your life. Pretty amazing!
Ultimately, Learn More, Live More seeks to become an inter-generational community center for people of all ages to engage with each other empowered by their love for learning and for a healthy life. Through our holistic approach to personal development, we seek to foster habits that promote an open-minded society centered on understanding and making possibilities come true- all the while maintaining our roots of having a supportive and freelance structure tailored to our instructors.
