RECCS University offers lifelong learning classes for RECCS members, their family and friends.
Who can attend? In addition to members, their friends, adult relatives, and/or neighbors are welcome to register; they can attend with a member or attend on their own.
RECCS U Goals
1. Raise money to fund scholarships for high school seniors
2. Provide members with opportunities for active learning
3. Gather members, family members, and friends who share similar interests
Presenters: Classes taught by skilled experts who have an intense interest in their topic. Of note, all presenters volunteer their time & talent. Many are retired employees; some are members’ friends or family; others work or volunteer in our communities. Their generosity benefits learners who attend classes, supports the scholarship program, and gives back to our community. Thank you!
Class Meetings: Both morning and afternoon classes usually meet for two hours, once weekly, for one to four consecutive weeks. A short break is scheduled in the middle of each session.
Enrollment & Fees: Registration and payment of class fees happen online at . Class fees are based on the rate of $5 per class hour; $10 for a 2-hour class that meets once.
Online Payment: We use the secure site, PayPal, to register for classes. However, you do not need a PayPal account. To pay with a credit card, first click on the PayPal link, then follow directions to use your credit card. Confirmation will come from PayPal, but they will not use your information for marketing.
If are unable to pay online for any reason, contact a committee member by phone or email. RECCS U will make arrangements for payment when you arrive at class. Personal check preferred. If you don't pay online or call, your name will not be registered -- even if you complete the required personal information.
Location: Classes held at SARC (near Arapahoe & Parker Roads) at 14188 E. Briarwood Ave., Centennial 80112.
Scholarship Funding: Since January 2018 when RECCS U started, almost 300 people have attended 22 classes, many enrolling for several classes. Class fees raised $2,500 to help fund the RECCS Scholarship Program. Our goal is to double that amount to $5,000 over the next year.
Scheduling: Two to four classes monthly throughout the year. In February, our month-long series of a dozen class topics is planned.
Marketing: RECCS U is also changing the way it informs members about upcoming classes. To save the cost of printing & mailing, we primarily use email and the RECCS website to communicate with members. Information will also be distributed at RECCS events.
