OLLI York currently has four SIGs, which include hiking, cycling, Spouses Speak, and knitting. A creative writing SIG is currently being developed. SIGs often begin with an OLLI course that brings members together who share similar interests. Participation is free to OLLI members, the agenda/scheduled outings are agreed upon by SIG members, and OLLI members can join a SIG at any time. Learn more about OLLI SIGS!
