Volunteer for Osher

Lead an Osher Program

Take your passion for learning to the next level by leading a program for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. To propose a mini course or lecture that you want to lead, please complete our Course/Lecture Planning Guide. Osher program leaders serve as volunteers.

Whether you’re a prospective or current Osher program leader, the Osher Institute offers a workshop to help you plan your lecture or mini course. Check the Schedule of Classes for upcoming workshop dates.

Be sure to review a guide to using classroom multi-media equipment (computer, LCD projector, etc).

Volunteer in the Osher Program

Members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute are invited to participate in many aspects of the Institute. We hope that through member volunteers, we will not only expand what we can accomplish in terms of classes and programs, but also increase the connection for Osher members with everything we do through the Osher Institute.
