Volunteer Outreach

Empty bowls event The life-blood of our organization is based on volunteers that give of their time, energies and skills. This past year, 95 NFLL members volunteered over 5,700 hours to support the curriculum, membership, social, communications, volunteer committees and the NFLL Council.

Along with the volunteer opportunities within our organization, we assist in outreach programs within our community. As part of Mesa Community College, we also volunteer to help meet the needs of the college and its students.

Over the years, NFLL members have served on the MCC Commission on Excellence in Education, Center for Community and Civic Engagement and the Red Mountain Campus Advisory Committee. Members routinely volunteer with college programs such as Empty Bowls, Mesa Market, We Care Wednesdays, and Books Off the Shelf (formerly The Human Library).

Have questions or want to volunteer? Please contact Mary Adamick who is a member of the Volunteer Committee.

Scholarship Awards

New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning supports deserving Mesa Community College (MCC) students each year through a scholarship program. The scholarships began in 1999 and have ranged anywhere from $250 to $2,000, annually.

The award recipients are selected by a scholarship committee and the MCC Financial Aid Office assists in awarding the scholarships. Students are ranked by academic excellence and by the quality of their application that includes a statement expressing their educational goals and validation of their need for financial assistance. More information about the scholarship process can be found on our website here.

New Frontiers is proud to play an important part in their lives and studies!

For information regarding our Scholarship Program, contact NFLL President Cindy Schrantz.

Speakers' Bureau

New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning offers organizations within our community a speaker program. We conduct a presentation on the benefits of staying active, socializing, and continuing to activate the mind in a learning environment.

Do you know of a church or community organization in the Phoenix East Valley that needs a speaker for a meeting? How about a Red Hat Society function or perhaps your community association? We'd be happy to discuss your needs and conduct a presentation. We provide handouts, brochures and current information. Simply contact our Speakers Bureau coordinator for more information and to set up an appointment.
