Lifelong Learning Collaborative (LLC) is able to keep our courses and activities affordable because we are run by volunteers. All Board and committee members volunteer their time. There is only one paid consultant who is in responsible for the website, catalog design/layout and various administrative duties. Members are encouraged to share their talents and expertise with the organization on a regular basis.

How would you like to help out? Fill out the Volunteer Interest Form below.
