Volunteer Interests

If you are interested in volunteering, please check one or more of the boxes below to indicate the activities you wish to participate in.

      Reach out to up to four new OLLI members to make them feel welcome, orient them to OLLI, and answer any questions they may have. This can be over e-mail or phone. Contact is made before the start of classes, during the session, and as a follow up at the end to see how things went. If inclined, Welcomers can offer to meet their new members for a coffee in the Social Space or even during time outside of OLLI.

      The Development Committee is responsible for CAMPAIGN 2020. We are actively seeking OLLI members who have interest and experience in various fundraising activities that are essential for a successful fundraising strategy, including solicitation, grant writing, and campaign development.

      The Innovative Program Committee is one of the newest OLLI at AU committees. It was established after the 2017 national OLLI meeting during which several other OLLIs presented their innovative programs. One idea that was presented was an OLLI-wide book club. The OLLI at AU Innovative Programs Committee adopted that idea and led a very successful book club meeting with a panel discussion on Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. We will have another book club event this Fall. Put your creative hat on and join us in creating new and exciting OLLI programs.

      Recommends policies and activities to the Board that grow and maintain OLLI's membership base and diversity. Conducts media and outreach initiatives to expand awareness of OLLI at AU in the local community and greater Washington area.

      Plan and implement social events so that members of the OLLI community feel welcome, get to know each other, and become enthusiastic members of its learning community. Organize social events, including coffee breaks before and after classes, open houses with tours of OLLI spaces, holiday parties, and fundraising events. We seek volunteers who are cheerful, friendly, and interested in strengthening the OLLI experience.
