The Wisdom Project
: A program for community members age 55 and older to build greater understanding of Greater Hall County, enlist participants' skills to better understand our community, and tap into the wisdom of our residents. 


The Wisdom Project is a Vision 2030 initiative, developed and presented by the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce and Brenau University's Center for Lifetime Study. The Wisdom Project prepares individuals age 55 and older to use their wisdom and talents in creative ways through action and advocacy.

Through a hands-on service project and interaction with like-minded individuals from throughout the community, Wisdom Project participants experience a dynamic, multi-faceted view of Gainesville and Hall County, explore local issues and opportunities and engage with community leaders.

Wisdom Project participants should be adults age 55 and older who have volunteer or leadership experience. Graduates of the program may serve on the Wisdom Keepers Council- an advisory group for subsequent programs and advocacy projects.

Applications for the Fall 2015 class will be available online or by calling Kathy Amos, Brenau's Center for Lifetime Study, at 770.538.4705.

The program fee is $175 per person, including materials and lunches.
