We are excited to be offering our first all virtual session this summer — “OLLI Anywhere”.

Our “classrooms” will be held via Zoom and all our study groups will follow our regular peer-led, highly interactive, social, and fun approach to learning. Training will be provided for those who will be new to OLLI this summer as well as current members who want a bit more help.

Special Events, Workshops, Lectures, and More 
Registration for these events is on-going. Currently, all our events are being offered as webinars. These events are free and open to all current OLLI members as part of their membership benefits (unless noted otherwise). Webinars require two-step registration for security purposes. The first step is to register here on the OLLI Online Registration System. The registration for each event closes at noon the day before the event. Once registration closes all registrants will be emailed a link to complete their registration. Once this second step is completed, registrants will be emailed a link to join the webinar. DO NOT share the webinar link as it is specific to each registrant and space is limited at these events.
