Volunteers Needed

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