  • Current News

  • We Are Always Looking for Facilitators!

  • Facilitators are the very heart of our OLLI program. OLLI is successful because every term we have an intriguing curriculum and a "faculty" of dedicated people volunteering their time to make it happen.

    If you are interested in finding out more about facilitating at OLLI West, go to the Facilitator Info & Resources tab at the top of this web page. You can also contact either of our Curriculum Committee Co-Chairs, Bob Magnani at bobmagnani@comcast.net or Jim Keller at kellerjb10@aol.com.

  • OLLI West Scholarship Fund

  • Through the gracious generosity of an OLLI West member (who wishes to remain anonymous), we now have a well-funded OLLI West Scholarship Fund. The fund will assist those who wish to participate in OLLI West classes, but are financially unable. If you, or someone you know, would like more information, please contact Sherry Feinbaum at sherry.feinbaum@du.edu. All inquiries and scholarships will remain confidential.

  • OLLI West Loves Volunteers!

    Volunteering is far more than simply doing a good deed. It can be a great way to re-purpose your skills, develop friendships, get exercise, or even just shake up your routine. 

    When you share your time and talents, you’ll not only feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment, but together we can connect with others, solve problems, and strengthen our OLLI community! 

    Join our active OLLI West volunteer community -- they are the heart of our organization. Raise your hand, get noticed, and let us know how you can help!

    Pease contact Sherry Feinbaum at sherry.feinbaum@du.edu
