Teach For OLLI

Share Your Expertise and Experience!

OLLI offers a wide range of courses and is always interested in adding new expertise. Whether you are interested in providing a one-day bonus course or committing to a 6-8 week term, OLLI would love to discuss your interest and available options

  • Inspire others to learn and explore
  • Develop innovative and exciting courses
  • Teach without administrative burdens
  • Engage with peers and share interests

Although volunteering as an OLLI instructor provides no financial compensation, you will feel rewarded by the extensive positive feedback and generous "aha!" moments you provide to others. No teaching experience necessary; volunteer training available and course facilitator provided.
