Tufts University Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
Brookhaven at Lexington has a strong learning collaborative with the Tufts Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Brookhaven residents enjoy participating in study groups at the Medford campus or enjoy the convenience of the Osher LLI at Brookhaven satellite campus. In addition to class study, the Osher LLI program provides Brookhaven residents who may have an expertise or interest in a subject area, the opportunity to lead study groups. Members hail from all over eastern Massachusetts as well as from Brookhaven to participate in this truly stimulating learning environment.
Bentley University Service-Learning
Bentley University Service-Learning is an outreach program that pairs Brookhaven residents with up and coming leaders from Bentley University. Students teach residents a variety of computer skills. The interaction is both satisfying and stimulating, and sometimes the resident teaches the student. Other Bentley Service-Learning/Brookhaven projects include students working with residents to capture memoirs for sharing with family and friends, movie screenings and discussions, and conversation partners focusing on different languages.
The Brookhaven outreach programs offer variety, intergenerational and peer learning, leadership, vocational and volunteer opportunities. They also give our residents the chance to make a difference.
