Welcome to UAF-OLLI! > Get More Involved > Volunteer


OLLI couldn't exist without volunteers!

Volunteers teach classes, serve on our OLLI Advisory Board and committees, lead Special Interest Groups (SIGs), and help in the classrooms and office.



Curriculum Committee:

Are you excited when the new OLLI catalog arrives in your mailbox? Planning our next course catalog is a major task. Volunteers help recruit instructors, as well as getting the final commitment (and paperwork) from instructors so that a class is a “go.” The committee also ensures that we offer a well-rounded and intriguing collection of classes, with the goal that there will be a class for everybody.

Diversity Committee:

Do you have ideas for how to invite and include under-represented groups into our OLLI community? Or ideas for classes that might be of interest to groups who are currently not well-represented in OLLI? We’d love to become a welcoming and inclusive space for all of Fairbanks. Please help us make this happen!

Day trips Committee:

Every year, usually in the summer, OLLI offers free day trips for members. In the past, we've toured GVEA's new solar array, learned about bird banding, and visited a miniature horse farm. This committee makes these trips happen.

Hospitality Committee:

Social events such as our Annual Membership Meeting Picnic require planning, cooking or ordering food, set-up, and clean-up, as well as welcoming other members.

Publicity Committee:

Help us spread the word about OLLI's programs and how to register.
