MYRTLE BEACH, SC – Neighbor to Neighbor will be expanding its services: in addition to providing transportation to those in need, the local non-profit is launching a lifelong learning program in September. Joe Kunkel, Executive Director, has recruited Carol Osborne and Kelli Barker, former director and assistant director of Coastal Carolina University’s division of Academic and Community Outreach, to create opportunities for community members to stay active, interact socially, and continue learning, creating, and exploring, even after retirement. What’s Next? Senior Adventures in Learning and Travel (SALT) will begin in the fall with online courses, clubs, and virtual excursions. Once the threat of COVID-19 dissipates, the organization hopes to offer local, regional, national, and international trips and face-to-face classes as well. While most of the programming is geared for those 50 and older, anyone above the age of 21 is welcome to participate. A full catalog of courses and registration information will be available on the website by September 1.
