Share your knowledge and expertise.

We are in high need of volunteer instructors who have a passion for a subject or would like to share their expertise or individuals who have experience running workshops or courses. You may share your knowledge on a wide variety of subjects in the Arts, Humanities, Sciences, Technology and Contemporary Issues.  

Instructors are responsible for developing the course including research, providing reading materials, presentation, and delivery.  Courses can be delivered in a variety of formats, Lecture with some Q&A, Lecture with some discussion, Discussion (facilitated course), Interactive/hands-on (such as painting, memoir writing, etc.) and courses can include guest speakers.

We are looking for individuals with an interest in sharing their enthusiasm for their field of excellence with older adults. 

To assist you, we have available an Instructor Coaching and Mentoring Program and are presently developing an Instructor Training Program which will be available in the new year and is free for anyone wanting to become an instructor or looking to improve their present instructor skill sets.
