Athens State University Center for Lifelong Learning is offering virtual classes this summer for kids and adults. There is something for everyone. Classes and camps will be offered via Zoom. A link to access the class or camp will be emailed to students one week prior to the beginning of the camp. You can get more information about our classes and camps on our website – www.athens.edu/CLL - or call us at 256-233-8260.
Our summer classes for adults will provide an opportunity to earn a certificate this summer. A little investment now will have long term benefits for your career or personal life. The Leadership Certificate Series will help you become a more effective leader, manager, or supervisor, through practical skill-based learning. Develop leadership skills that can benefit you both personally and professionally by enhancing your knowledge of communication, collaboration, ethics, strategic planning, and innovation. Classes will start June 2.
Also being offered this summer are Excel for Business, First Time Manager, and Navigating Social Media. Do you feel overwhelmed by a growing list of tasks? Do you have back-to-back work days begin busy but are not get closer to completing important projects? In the Time Management Certificate course, you’ll learn ways to take control of your workload by setting priorities and eliminating common obstacles that stand in the way of increased efficiency and productivity. Class will be June 17.
Our summer camps for kids will begin June 1 with Hands Up! American Sign Language Camp. This camp will have kids putting their “hands up” exploring American Sign Language (ASL) and learning the official language of the Deaf. We will be using stories and other activities to learn vocabulary and communication skills in sign language – which will help kids have a better understanding of deaf culture. By the end of the week you will learn many different signs, tell stories and jokes in ASL, and even sign some songs.
Yoga for Teens also starts on June 1. Teens will practice beginner level yoga movements to help them physically and mentally. Relaxation techniques help to clear the mind and deal with day-to-day stress. No previous experience required. There is a Yoga for Kids starting June 8.
Camps will run through July. Watch for Words Alive! Adventures in Writing and Illustrating Short Stories, Photography for Kids, Hip Hop, and Game Coding Camp. You can get the full list of camps on our website – www.athens.edu/CLL - or give us a call at 256-233-8260.
This summer may seem different, but it is still filled with fun camps and great offerings for adults.
