The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute could not run without our volunteers. Our volunteers assist in most aspects of our operations, and we are also pleased to welcome new faces. If you would like to help in any of the areas listed below, please email

Assist in Classrooms

Osher has a continual need for classroom volunteers in the following areas:

  • Host. Assists with roll call and general member announcements. Training is provided.
  • Class Assistant. Assists with powering up audiovisual equipment, "mic"ing up the instructor, adjusting room lighting, and monitoring volume. Training is provided.

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is always interested in expanding its curriculum to include topics for enrichment of its members. If you are interested in teaching, we will send you a form asking for information about your area of expertise or interest/hobby and other pertinent data. There is a special session for people considering becoming an Osher Instructor on Tuesday, February 7, at 1:30-3:30 pm. Call the Osher office (757-221-1506) for information if you are interested in attending.

Lead Activities

Osher will send you a questionnaire to describe the type of activity you would like to lead. We currently include activities ranging from practicing a foreign language to walking tours, yoga, meditation and other types of exercise.

Office Support

The Osher office needs volunteers to help with general office duties such as answering the phone, preparing mailings and course files, and data entry.

Serve on Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Leadership Council and Committees

Osher relies on volunteers to serve on various committees and for three-year terms on the Council.
