Volunteer with OLLI

OLLI at Emory could not function without the dedicated service of the members who volunteer. You can contribute your ideas and expertise by volunteering to serve on an OLLI committee. Each committee has a different function and time requirement. Below are the current standing committees. You are welcome to join a committee at any time by letting the OLLI staff or committee chair know of your interest.
