SAILL – the Springfield Area Institute for Lifelong Learning is a partnership of United Senior Services with Clark State Community College, the Springfield Symphony, the Clark County Historical Society and many others.

The mission of SAILL is to offer the community a catalogue of intellectually stimulating education for adults at least 55 years of age that inspires congenial discovery and discussion in an informal atmosphere. SAILL is affiliated with the Road Scholar network.

Wanted–Educators, Experts, Enthusiasts! Come and share your passions as an instructor with SAILL. The arts, humanities, sciences, health, sports, hobbies–whatever your area, if you want to share your skills and knowledge with older adults, then we want you! We offer informal classes, one-time presentations, panel discussions, hands-on projects–whatever format suits your topic. We are interested in attracting talented instructors and trainers to offer a variety of topics in our spring and fall catalogs. Dates, times, supplies, and fees are negotiable.
