Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) is a member-led organization. When you volunteer, not only will you meet new people and gain a sense of accomplishment, you will make a difference in a learning-focused organization. Thank you for your involvement!
Volunteer to help with LLI's curriculum planning. In this role, you will be mentored by a seasoned member of LLI. You will work with presenters to create courses for the upcoming semesters. Then, analyze member feedback & ensure a broad spectrum of subjects. Most needed in Marinette, Manitowoc & Sheboygan. Meetings monthly.
For in-person classes, class coordinators contact presenters in preparation for class. On the day of class, coordinators introduce presenters and monitor the attendance sign-in sheet. Coordinators ensure the smooth flow of LLI classes. Needed at all campus locations. Meetings as needed.
Zoom class moderators contact the presenter in the weeks leading up to class and introduce them at the start of class. Moderators handle all aspects of the Zoom class — address raised hands, chat messages and mute microphones — to ensure class flows smoothly and the presenter can focus on their presentation. Virtual meetings as needed.
Board of Directors
The LLI Board of Directors is composed of an elected President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and three members-at-large. There are also representatives from the five committees: curriculum planning, social, publicity and promotions, technology, and finance. Elections occur annually in May. Elected terms begin July 1. Meetings monthly via Zoom or in-person.
Publicity & Promotions
If you enjoy LLI so much that you want to "spread the word" about it in the community, publicity and promotions would appreciate your help! You will also have opportunities to promote LLI in person at community events such as Artstreet and Intro to LLI. Meetings monthly.
If you enjoy greeting and helping people in-person and on the phone, LLI welcomes your help. Office volunteers provide warm, friendly and exceptional service to anyone that calls or visits. They also handle general office duties. Office hours are Monday-Friday 9 a.m.- 2 p.m.
Are you inspired by a well-balanced spreadsheet? LLI needs volunteers with finance knowledge to help review revenues and expenses and prepare an annual budget in collaboration with others. Responsibilities also include membership fees, gifts, donations and funding programs. Meetings monthly.
Do you have a good understanding of technology and enjoy troubleshooting? Technology volunteers monitor the performance of LLI's audio/video equipment and make suggestions for improvement. With support from IT, these volunteers ensure the learning experience is the best it can be.
Social is for you if you enjoy entertaining and planning "fun" events. LLI hosts three luncheon socials each year: Fall Kickoff, Winter Social and Spring Fling. We also host a spring Volunteer Appreciation event and a fall New Member Welcome. Choose event venues, find speakers or entertainment and craft decorations. Meetings as needed.
