Elderhostel, now known as Road Scholar, has been the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning and educational travel since 1975. Their mission is to empower adults to explore the world's places, peoples, cultures and ideas, and in so doing to discover more about themselves.
Trinity Center has combined Road Scholar/Elderhostel's unwavering commitment to lifelong learning with our beautiful outdoor and indoor classrooms and a talented teaching staff comprised of area professors and professionals, many world reknowned in their field, and our own staff of gifted instructors to create a powerful and enjoyable learning experience. Since 1992, Trinity Center has been providing Elderhostel programmining covering a variety of subjects from the ecology and culture of the Outer Banks to emerging technologies used to protect this fragile ecosystem.
Elderhostel is now Road Scholar!
With the changing world dynamics Elderhostel felt that it had outgrown its' name. So, it has changed it's name to Road Scholar. Another exciting change has been to eliminate the age requirement. Now all adults with a desire for life long learning can enroll in the amazing programs Road Scholar has to offer, thus appealing to a wide variety of people interested in both an educational and a travel experience. Along with the new name comes a streamlined catalog so participants may easily choose from thousands of available programs, from "Intergenerational" learning experiences, bringing together children and their grandparents, to active Outdoor Adventure programs to new Service Programs.
