It is the only private non-profit in Hillsborough County and one of few across the country focused on redefining and reshaping retirement and the experience of aging​​​​. Its cultural arts program has received national and international recognition and serves as a model of a successful community-based organization, serving adults primarily 50+. Over 25 classes and events are offered each week, including an array of visual arts, writing, games, health, fitness, and more.

The LEC's mission is for our students to fulfill their lifelong creative potential through the ageless engagement of the arts!
