C.A.L.L. is an enrichment program for adult learners of any age without regard to previous education. The organization provides its members a variety of informal, low-cost, high-quality classes, study groups and field trips.
Types of programs offered by C.A.L.L. include trips to see theatrical productions; a variety of arts and crafts enrichment classes; a health and wellness series; technology and photography classes; and Living in Arizona programs that teach geology, birding, gardening and astronomy – just to name a few.

Many C.A.L.L. classes utilize "carpooling" as a way to travel to a class location. There are typically two departure points – Superstition Mountain Campus in Apache Junction and the Central Arizona College Corporate Center on I-10 in Casa Grande.
Carpooling is not organized by the C.A.L.L. staff - participants simply show up at the site and organize themselves into groups. Drivers or carpool organizers are requested to be visible at departure points wearing C.A.L.L. name tags and standing outside of their vehicles.
The C.A.L.L. office is located on Central’s Superstition Mountain Campus in Apache Junction and holds daily business hours from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday. C.A.L.L. may be reached at the following numbers:
