As one OLLI member said, “The courses are not focused on exams, grades, time schedules or homework, and this lack of pressure makes learning a pure pleasure.” The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute has a volunteer instruc- tional staff with an impressive list of credentials reflecting a lifetime of experience in aca- demia, government, the arts and the private sector.

Clean the World is a nonprofit that partners with hotels around the globe to recycle discarded soap and hygiene products to donate to impoverished people. Students assembled 160 care packages filled with soap, shampoo, deodor- ant, toothpaste, washcloths and razors along with handwritten notes to be distributed to hurricane victims. Simons and her mother, Jackie Berger of the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel, are credited for forming a partnership with Clean the World and the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Associa- tion. Together they are working to reach a goal of citywide hotel participation in Ocean City, Md., for Clean the World's soap-recycling program.
