  • 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, Gail Wilson at gtwilson43@gmail.com 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 Susan Schmetzer at susanolliwest@gmail.com. All inquiries and scholarships will remain confidential.
