OLLI at DU is a Volunteer Organization. OLLI members and volunteer instructors 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. There are many ways to become involved in any of the OLLI at DU sites. Your involvement supports the continuation of OLLI at DU and its growth and health.
