OLLI Clubs & Committees


The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) enjoys offering a variety of clubs for its members. These clubs are just one additional way for our members to socialize with other members who have similar interests. Some of the clubs include:

  • Book Club
    A monthly meeting, facilitated by our Library Liaison, discussing a different literary work each time.

  • Grandparenting Discussion Group
    A monthly meeting of OLLI members who are raising grandchildren, discussing resources, issues, and practical ways to navigate grandparenting.

  • Grandmom and Me
    This weekly group meets during one of our term sessions, allowing OLLI members who are providing daycare to their young grandchildren to bring their little one in for a story and craft.

  • Delaware County Community Theatre Club
    This club meets to attend and support local community theatres, and enjoys discussions about the performances afterward.



OLLI at Widener University operates with the help of members who volunteer to participate in one of the following committees. Help is always appreciated. Some of our committees include:

  • Curriculum Committee
    Discusses and influences the choices of courses and special events to be offered each semester

  • Hospitality Committee
    Assists in making the public and new members feel welcome at OLLI; includes planning of OLLI Open Houses, and the Annual OLLI luncheon

  • Special Events Committee
    Coordinates all of the field trips and other special events

  • Outreach Committee
    Develop strategies to increase and maintain membership, including public relations campaigns and press releases, as well as outreach to area retirement communities
