Adult Scholars Leadership Program

2017 Dates: February 6, 7, 9, 10, 13 & 14

The Adult Scholars Leadership Program (ASLP) unites intellect with opportunity, passion with purpose, skill with need.

The Adult Scholars Leadership Program engages seniors with community leaders, experts and policy makers to proactively explore, learn and participate in solutions to our regional challenges.

The program provides participants with a political, economic, educational, law enforcement, historical and cultural view of the region; identifies and responds to critical challenges in our region; encourages participants to become involved in community activities as volunteers; and inspires participants to create events that meet their needs and benefit the community.

Who are adult scholars? You.

Since 1991, more than 500 alumni have been helping communities reach their potential. Alumni include government officials, educators, health care providers, volunteers, and Fortune 500 executives.

What will I learn? Everything.

The leadership program provides you with an up-to-date snapshot of the political, economic, educational, law enforcement, historical and cultural forces driving the region. You will:

  • Identify critical issues;
  • Employ your unique skills and characteristics; and
  • Develop awareness for volunteer and networking opportunities.

What does it cost? It's a bargain.

  • $250 (OLLI membership required)
    Tuition includes a catered lunch each day, a participant notebook, handouts, and a graduation ceremony.
