OLLI is experiencing steady annual growth in the number of study groups offered and number of participants registered.  In fact, 2018 has been a record year in both categories.  As we grow, new leaders become necessary.

If you're interested in leading a study group, or if you've facilitated before but would like to learn new tips and best practices, we encourage you to take advantage of our FREE training session on December 5 at Peoria Next.  Veteran facilitators will be on hand to discuss what has worked well and what innovations might serve groups well in the future.  You'll also receive a facilitator handbook and enjoy lunch while we learn.

Facilitating (or, to use a less lofty term, leading) a study group is an opportunity to take a passion and learn more about it while sharing that passion with others who have a curiosity about that topic.  It does not require expertise.

A study group leader does NOT give a two hour lecture each week.  A leader fosters discussion by providing topical questions and avenues of inquiry for our curious members.  As a new leader, you will not be alone.  You will have friends at OLLI to guide you, support you, and even co-facilitate your group.  

If you have questions, or need more information about the facilitator training, please contact OLLI Director Michelle Riggio at mriggio@bradley.edu.
