Become a Volunteer


Volunteering at the Academy is fun and rewarding!

Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy (RCLLA) is an independent, not-for-profit organization. We rely on the support of volunteers in many areas, and we offer thanks to those who quietly but regularly support us in ways too numerous to list.

Members of RCLLA are invited to participate in many aspects of the Academy. We hope that through member volunteers, we will not only expand what we can accomplish in terms of classes and programs, but also increase the connection for RCLLA members with everything we do through the Academy. Volunteering helps RCLLA, but it can enrich your life, too: get to know your fellow students and meet new friends.

Volunteer opportunities are as Follows:


Special Events

Purpose: To assist in planning and managing the events of the Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy.

This committee assists with lecture, Einstein and other event registration.   All members must be active participants in the Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy.


The Curriculum Committee is at the heart of the sometimes lengthy but always interesting process which identifies, reviews and selects the courses which will be offered at the Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy.  All approved courses must fall within the Academy’s mission statement and are selected each term with an eye to presenting a balanced program of choices.  The committee is actively involved in identifying potential new courses as well as encouraging new instructors and supporting our valued established instructors.  Among the committee’s membership are Academy board members, course instructors, and students.
