According to staff at the Mayo Clinic, “Good friends are good for your health. Friends can help you celebrate good times and provide support during bad times. Friends prevent loneliness and give you a chance to offer needed companionship, too.” The purpose of our Going Clubbing course is to help you help others form clubs and classes to foster friendships. Here you will find lots of ideas for forming five types of groups. They include those related to:
- Common subject interests, such as photography, travel, gardening, and bird watching
- Lifelong learning classes for studying things like art history or music appreciation
- Exercise that goes beyond sitting in a chair and doing leg lifts
- Common social interests, such as going to a ball game or the theater or playing cards
- Service that continues the work of existing clubs, such as Kiwanis and Rotary, or begins a new club for specific projects
This course has been pre-approved by the NCCAP.
