  • We Love Volunteers!

  • OLLI members and volunteer facilitators are the heartbeat of the institute and are the reason it will thrive while keeping the fees low.

    Volunteering is a direct way for members to have input into the decisions and direction of OLLI.

    Volunteering is a rewarding and stimulating experience, and another way to meet new people.

    If you are interested in helping out on a committee or just one time at an event, contact barbaraolliboulder@gmail.com for more information.  We need you!

    Curiosity Never Retires – OLLI is in Boulder!

    Registration Starts August 5, 2019; Fall Classes Begin September 16, 2019

    The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, better known as OLLI, is a program designed for people age 50+ wishing to pursue intellectual learning opportunities in a relaxed, stimulating, and socially interactive atmosphere. Thanks to the generosity of the Bernard Osher Foundation, OLLI at the University of Denver is one of more than 120 affiliated institutes across the U.S. helping older learners find personal fulfillment. OLLI-Boulder is the newest venue, having opened its doors to more than 200 new members in January 2019.

    Classes meet for three eight-week terms (winter, spring, fall), and include courses in history, music, film, writing, literature, philosophy, current events, science, wellness, and more. In addition, a speaker series, workshops and field trips expand the curriculum. Most classes meet one day a week for two hours and are facilitated by OLLI member-volunteers who have professional knowledge or scholarly interest in a subject area. Facilitators include retired university faculty members, skilled professionals, and independent scholars.

    Registration for an OLLI term means that members can participate in as many classes as they want at any of the six metropolitan area OLLI sites: Boulder, East, Central, West, South, and the DU Campus. The cost is $130 per term. There will be a Fall Term Preview Event, Thursday, August 1, 2019, 10 a.m. – noon, at our OLLI-Boulder location (Mountain View United Methodist Church, 355 Ponca Pl., Boulder) to familiarize prospective members with the program and the upcoming fall classes. Registration starts on August 5; classes begin September 16. Be sure to register your email on the OLLI-Boulder website http://portfolio.du.edu/olliboulder and check often for updates, including the course catalog and registration information.

    Charles Erdrich is a member of Boulder’s Senior Community Advisory Committee, and has served on the OLLI-Boulder development group. For more info on the program, contact Barbara Darling, OLLI-Boulder Site Manager, at barbaraolliboulder@gmail.com, or Charlie at cerdrich@gmail.com.
