Villages of the Berkshires and OLLI at Berkshire Community College Joint Information Session

Learn about help for older adults to age-in-place and opportunities for Lifelong Learning at a free meeting in Pittsfield.

Thursday, May 21, 2024 at 1:30 p.m. ET

In-person at Berkshire Community College, Pittsfield, MA

Free & open to all

Villages of the Berkshires (VoB) is a local non-profit with a mission to help people age in their own home.  They are accepting older adult members, supporters and volunteers of all ages. The event is in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Berkshire Community College (OLLI at BCC), which provides exciting educational opportunities designed for people 50 years old and better.

VoB provides volunteers to assist elders with tasks such as: transportation, basic home maintenance and repairs, IT support, and friendly check-in visits or phone calls. It is part of a country-wide “Villages Movement” helping seniors age-in-place. Financial assistance is available to make membership accessible to people of all income levels.

OLLI at BCC is a dynamic learning community with over 1,500 members that offers 200+ terrific programs a year, including four semesters of courses, lectures, special events and trips, shared interest groups, and more! OLLI programs meet online, in-person around Berkshire County, and sometimes, both! 

All those looking to learn about participation in Villages of the Berkshires and OLLI at Berkshire Community College are encouraged to enjoy refreshments and meet new friends at this informational session.
