Hanover — The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Dartmouth, is looking for volunteers to help the continuing education organization with a variety of tasks.

“Our volunteers are the backbone of our program,” Program Manager Lisa King said in a news release. “Their contributions keep our program running smoothly.”

The nonprofit organization, which offers many different classes and lectures throughout the year, needs volunteers who live within an hour’s drive of Hanover to help put up fliers in their towns announcing upcoming Osher@Dartmouth events. The task is expected to take about 30 minutes each month, and volunteers can pick up the fliers at the Osher office at 7 Lebanon St. in Hanover or receive them via mail.

“I was so glad to see the event posted at the corner store to remind me,” a member said in the release. “Email is great, and sometimes I just need that visual reminder to get me going.”

Osher also is looking for volunteers for a variety of other positions, including volunteer coordinator. Other opportunities include greeting visitors at the office, preparing materials for class members and study leaders, assembling mailings, and some minor computer tasks.

The organization also is seeking “tech savvy” volunteers to help with technical support for study leaders and at the free “Tech Cafes” Osher offers to its members who want to learn more about computers, smartphones and other devices.
