REAP is a group of retired people whose purpose is the pursuit of knowledge. It was founded in 1970 as a program of the Cheltenham Pennsylvania Township Adult School and has been an unincorporated association since 2007. 

REAP provides the opportunity to research an unfamiliar subject and present a talk based upon that research. We have found that this method enhances our knowledge and provides us with a considerable feeling of self accomplishment.  Our members commit to present a  75-minute talk every 18 to 24 months to our fellow REAP colleagues. We challenge ourselves to study topics that are both interesting to ourselves and that we can learn from. 

REAP offers opportunities for pleasant interaction with a diverse group of warm and welcoming people. Find out about the many other benefits that REAP offers. Our members reside in Philadelphia and its suburbs.


If you are a retiree who would enjoy the continued pursuit of knowledge, REAP invites you to apply for membership. You will be treated to interesting and well-researched presentations on a variety of topics from colleagues who share similar interests. An application form can be found on the APPLY page of this website. For additional information or to be contacted by someone directly, email your request to:
