Registration for Summer and Fall Classes Is Open!


  • ☀️ Summer Session Dates: June 18 to July 24 ☀️

⚜️  People Program’s mission aligns with Harvard’s 85-year Adult Development study, showing that personal connections are the most important factor in long-term health and happiness for seniors. ⚜️

Located in New Orleans, People Program is an educational non-profit founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph 50 years ago to provide seniors with creative ways to enjoy community, learning, and staying active.

People Program offers 175+ weekday classes in the fall, spring, and summer sessions. All instructors are volunteers interested in sharing their knowledge in a relaxed atmosphere where community building is as essential as skill development. Typically, 425 participants enjoy themselves at People Program each semester.

Where: Classes are offered in person at our Eastbank and Westbank campuses and virtually by Zoom.

Cost: For a flat membership fee of $200 per semester ($150 Zoom only), participants can take as many classes as they'd like because there is no charge for each individual class (i.e., no "per class" charge).

We invite you to join us!
