Plus 50 Lifelong Learning
Wake Tech's Plus 50 program offers courses such as yoga, dance, Spanish and scrapbooking. If you take a course at a location other than a Wake Tech campus, such as a senior center, you must register for the course at that specific location.
In addition to courses offered at various Wake Tech campuses and sites, we offer programs at senior centers, community and recreation sites throughout Wake County.
