Shared Interest Groups   

Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) offer community and informal learning for OLLI members. SIGs are different from courses since there is not a paid instructor, but rather a facilitator who is an OLLI member voluntarily leading peers.

Unlike other OLLI programs, a SIG is designed to function long-term, not just for a term or a year. Participants must be OLLI members when joining and remain OLLI members for continued participation.
