Welcome to the Quest Learning Community

If you are retired or semi-retired and interested in a continuing adult education program geared to seniors, in a friendly, social, non-stressful, inviting environ­ment, Quest could be perfect for you.

Quest is based on a peer learning model through which members teach members. Quest also organizes cultural and social activities, such as visits to local museums and places of interest. Members also can vacation with fellow members – both nationally and internationally – through Quest’s extensive travel program.

  • Stimulating, Relaxed, Informal …
  • No Tests, No Grades or Required Attendance
  • Easy to Join, Easy to Get To

You will find Quest to be very welcoming; we interview all prospective members to ensure that Quest fits your needs, and determine how you can best contribute to the organization.

We invite you to spend a day with us, where you will be hosted by one of our members. Our location at the Battery, in close proximity to virtually all subway lines, makes us easy to reach. We have members who live in all parts of the city, Long Island and New Jersey.

The principal activity of QUEST is the selection, organization and teaching of a wide variety of courses.
