ELLA, as a volunteer organization, is looking for volunteers in all areas of its operations.  Whether you have expertise in planning and implementing programs, promoting organizations, celebrating volunteers, or working with computers or financials; we need your ideas and skills to provide exciting programs in 2022.

Our immediate needs are in the areas of Program Development and Administration.  Program Development is seeking volunteers in the areas of Humanities, Fine Arts, Wellness and Leisure and Evaluation.


The Board of Directors leads ELLA in providing excellent learning opportunities for adults over 50. This involves overseeing all aspects of ELLA operations, managing financial records and maintaining ELLA’s vision of lie-long learning.

We are seeking volunteers for several Board positions to begin in July 2022.  Ideally, candidates would be able to have a transition period this spring.
