Teach for OLLI

Share Your Knowledge and Passions with OLLI!

It’s a win-win situation!​

You get to share your expertise and enthusiasm for a topic or area of interest with OLLI members, and OLLI members get to have a new learning experience.​ You can facilitate a 90-minute multi-week course, a one-time 60-minute OLLI Talk, or give an educational walking tour of a neighborhood or other location.

If you already have a course, Talk, or tour in mind to present, please click the button below and fill in the form and someone will get back to you.​

Program Proposal Submission Form - Fall 2024

If you need help in developing and implementing your topic and ideas or creating a course proposal the OLLI staff offers consultations to assist you. In addition, an orientation workshop at the beginning of each term helps you become acquainted with OLLI and its members and share best practices for facilitating and presenting in the OLLI classroom. 

If interested or if you have questions, please contact Genny Peterson, OLLI Program Coordinator, at 617.287.7322, or email her!

A  proposal form guide is also available to assist with filling out the online form.
