The PLATO Society
Lifelong Learning Center – A dynamic community that shares a passion for learning. The PLATO Society of Los Angeles is a Domestic Nonprofit Organization with 501(c)(3) status.
At PLATO, the emphasis is on the enjoyment of learning, in a supportive environment where peers lead weekly study-discussion groups in which everyone participates. More than 70 different seven to fourteen-week courses are offered every twelve months. The topics change three times a year and are selected by the over 400 active members.
Whether it's opera, forensic science, the American Revolution, hominids, great jury trials, films of noted directors like David Lean, literature, art, baseball or any provocative topic members choose to study, discussions are in depth. PLATO members come from a variety of backgrounds, but all share a love of learning.
PLATO encourages people to arrange for a visit its office in Westwood to sample the "PLATO experience." For more information, please go to its website or call the office Monday through Friday and talk with members at the welcome desk.
