and knowledge."

lated as yet."
The 120 members of the In-
stitute of Retired Professionals
recently celebrated its first
anniversary. The institute de-
veloped from a steering com-
mittee of seven to its present
membership by recognizing
the needs of professional
people in finding new social,
cultural and recreational
interests upon retirement.
"The steering committee
studied educational programs
for older adults throughout the
country," says Judy Samson,
program developer for the
Senior Adult Department of
the Jewish Community Cen-
ter, "and developed guidelines
for a peer-learning program at
the JCC. The primary objective
and focus of the structure was
that all members in IRP were
to participate in the learning
process."
Samson points out that al-
though "professional" is part of
the group's title, not all mem-
bers are professional in the
narrow sense of the word. "It's
not one of the requirements for
membership," Samson ex-
plains. "The membership is
truly varied and includes
former librarians, doctors,
housewives, business people,
shop owners, dentists, social
workers — just about the
whole gamut. What is required
is that members be committed
to learning and willing to
share their experience and ex-
pertise."
IRP is different from other
programs at the JCC because it

focuses on peer learning. The
philosophy of the institute is
that each member is a learner
as well as a teacher and leader.
Everyone shares in the educa-
tion process.
"I don't want a lecture and
wouldn't attend the meetings if
there was one," says IRP
member Herman Chapin, ex-
pressing the sentiments of
many fellow members. "When
there's a teacher sitting in
front of the class, everyone sits
with their arms folded, barely
reacting. That's not for me."
Passive learning is not ac-
ceptable in IRP. Members
serve on special interest study
groups which they plan and di-
rect. Individuals may serve as
group facilitators who coordi-
nate the program and format,
or as active members of the
group, sharing opinions and in-
formation. Whatever the for-
mal title, everyone in the
group makes a commitment
and takes on the responsibility
of learning.
The institute is highly suc-
cessful because its members
and the Center staff under-
stand that adults, regardless of
age, are motivated to learn as
they experience needs and
interests that learning will
satisfy. For example, a study
group is formed when an IRP
member indicates a particular
idea and interest is generated
so that there are enough people
to make up a discussion group.
"New groups are continually
starting," Samson explains.
"All we need is a facilitator and
