Yavapai College Osher Lifelong Learners

OLLI is a dynamic organization within Yavapai College created to meet the needs of intellectually active mature adults. What makes OLLI a unique learning experience is that it has no tests, grades, or papers. It is a gathering of people who are endlessly curious and love to learn.

None of these learning groups, presentations, or workshops would be possible without the heart, passion, and steadfast dedication of the OLLI facilitators who volunteer to lead members in lively discussion and interaction. OLLI is always in search of individuals or groups interested in sharing their knowledge, expertise, passion, or interests with others.

OLLI invites you to be a facilitator for Winter or Spring sessions in 2016. You do not have to be a retired professor from a university to facilitate a class. The main requirement is a passionate interest in a subject. If you feel that you have valuable life experience, have researched a topic well in your life, are a professional who might have valuable information for mature adults, or have a passion for a topic, you can be an OLLI facilitator! There is no greater reward than to share what you love with others.

The Fall catalog can be viewed online at here. For more information, call 928-649-4275. Catalogs are available at many public locations in Cottonwood and Sedona.

  1. This is more than Sedona. It is every backyard. And not in mine. Joens is the worst politician and ambitious like all get out. Walking on our graves to get power in the valley. They want to ruin the Rez and get our rights back. Is there no morality left here?
