OLLI Calls to Action

The CEC defines a “Call to Action” to meet a specific need in the community. The committee has focused on education, housing and homelessness, and hunger and food insecurity and offers OLLI members the opportunity to work with various local organizations addressing critical needs in our community and to work in a group.

Find a list of active Civic Engagement Committee volunteer opportunities and contact information so that you can find the right volunteer members and work with other OLLI members to address important issues in the Asheville area.
