Enjoy fun activities, classes, and meet new friends through SCAN Learning Communities!
What are you doing this week? We’ve created SCAN Learning Communities to bring fun activities, classes, and new friends to you! Our Learning Communities help connect SCAN members together for virtual and on-demand social groups as well as for educational, health and wellbeing classes (with live and in-person events planned for future).
Got a skill or an area of expertise you want to share? You can even sign up to lead a session and share your expertise and passions with others. Events and classes are scheduled at various times of the year.
