CC Young and The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of North Texas (OLLI at UNT) signed a three-year Partnership Agreement with CC Young Senior Living in Dallas. As part of this agreement, OLLI at UNT’s Dallas-based courses will be held exclusively at The Point, CC Young’s 20,000 square foot multipurpose facility, which is open to both CC Young residents and senior adults in the general public.

This exclusive partnership continues OLLI at UNT’s expansion beyond Denton County. Prior to this agreement, OLLI at UNT offered non-credit courses for adults over the age of 50 at seven classroom locations across Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. 

“Expanding into Dallas is a logical next step,” said OLLI at UNT Director Stephanie Reinke. “We are thrilled to begin this relationship with CC Young and bring our courses to their best-in-class facilities. Senior adults throughout the Dallas area will now have convenient, affordable access to lifelong learning thanks to this commitment by the leadership of CC Young.”

CC Young President and CEO Russell Crews has maintained a close relationship with his alma mater since earning an MBA in finance from the UNT College of Business in 1986. He is a Lifetime Member of the UNT Alumni Association and has served on the College of Business Dean’s Advisory Board. In 2002, Crews was recognized with the university’s Outstanding Alumni Service Award.

“UNT holds a special place in my heart as does CC Young. This partnership continues our mission to foster premier environments where every life at every age can be valued and enriched. Engagement and continuing education are key elements for life enrichment at any age. We could not be more happy to offer this robust curriculum to our residents and area seniors – especially during our centennial year,” Crews said. “As Rev. C. C. Young set out to do 100 years ago, offering this amazing curriculum and engagement continues his ministry to enhance the quality of life for all we serve.”

OLLI at UNT courses cover a wide range of topics and are taught by subject matter experts, including both active and retired university faculty. A single course consists of up to four 90-minute sessions, with no mandatory assignments, tests or grades. Members attend the courses that interest them and learn in an open environment with their peers. 

“The value of lifelong learning is evident,” Reinke said. “Research indicates that staying intellectually and socially engaged can offset cognitive decline, improve memory and even increase a person’s lifespan.” 

OLLI at UNT courses will begin at The Point on the CC Young campus near White Rock Lake in the Fall 2022 semester. CC Young residents will be able to attend courses at no additional cost. Members of the surrounding community can join OLLI at UNT for as little as $55 per year and $15 per course. An all-inclusive discounted rate of $85 per year is available to military veterans and their spouses, as well as members of the UNT Alumni and Retiree Associations.

The Junior League of Dallas (JLD) invites community agencies to attend a virtual Grant Writing Workshop to learn more about applying for the JLD Community Program, Provisional Projects, Transfer Projects and grants awarded through Kids in the Kitchen and Community Outreach initiatives.

When: March 3, 2022 9:00-10:30 AM

RSVP by March 1st by visiting https://members.jld.net/?nd=vms_public_form&form_id=288.  A Zoom link will be sent upon registration.

About the Junior League of Dallas: The Junior League of Dallas cultivates leaders who collectively address the critical needs of the community. Founded in 1922, the JLD is one of the largest Junior Leagues in the world, as well as the largest and oldest training organization for women in Dallas.

NorthPark Center will host an exhibit to celebrate the Junior League of Dallas’ (JLD) Centennial, “Legacy of Leadership, Devotion to Dallas,” which will be on view from Jan. 27 through Feb. 17. The exhibit includes historical documents, memorabilia and photos that showcase JLD’s impressive 100-year history and current-day projects. The exhibit will be located on Level One near Bread Winners Café & Bakery.

The JLD began in 1922 with a group of 40 women determined to make a difference. Women had received the right to vote two years prior, but opportunities outside the home were still few. The League provided a place for these women to grow their talents and give back to their city. Today, the JLD is nearly 5,000 women strong.

This exhibit will allow patrons to see pieces of the League’s incredible history of leadership training from 1922 through present day through a video, photographs and more. In its 100-year history, the JLD has given nine million uncompensated volunteer hours to more than 200 agencies, which will be recognized in the exhibit, including Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, Dallas Museum of Art, Promise House, Notre Dame School, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, the JLD’s first project, and many more.

The exhibit also highlights a few of the Junior League of Dallas Signature Projects, including Kids in the Kitchen, a national program created to empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and reverse the trend of childhood obesity and its associated health issues. Through the Kids in the Kitchen interactive program, children and their families are taught how to prepare easy, nutritious meals, work safely in the kitchen and incorporate exercise into their daily lives. All recipes are kid tested and truly kid friendly, calling for simple ingredients that do not require an oven or stove.

In 2020, the Junior League of Dallas announced the rehabilitation of the Juanita J. Craft Civil Rights House as its Centennial project, which will be represented in the exhibit. The City of Dallas had been working to turn the Juanita Craft House into an educational museum, but efforts came to a halt when a sprinkler pipe burst in the attic and flooded the home in 2018. JLD is working with the City of Dallas to raise funds and rehabilitate the home.

“The Centennial team and our members have been working passionately to bring the history of the League back to life through this special exhibit,” said Centennial Co-chair Andrea Cheek. “There are so many stories to be told, and it has been inspiring to see all of the work the Junior League of Dallas has done around Dallas over the last 100 years.”

Along with the Centennial exhibit, the League will host its annual Community Volunteer Fair on Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at NorthPark Center. During the Community Volunteer Fair, the Junior League of Dallas offers the Dallas community a chance to connect with the nonprofit agencies the JLD supports. During this event, attendees will be able to learn more about volunteer opportunities.

Centennial Co-chair Margo Goodwin said, “We are so grateful to NorthPark Center for hosting this exhibit as we commemorate our Centennial and look forward to partnering with our community to build a better Dallas for the next 100 years.”

The Community Volunteer Fair and Centennial exhibit are both free and open to the public. More details on the exhibit and the Community Volunteer Fair can be found on https://www.jld.net/.

ABOUT CHRIST'S FAMILY CLINIC

The mission of Christ’s Family Clinic is simple: provide high-quality health careto the uninsured in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, regardless of race or religion. Founded in 2003, Christ’s Family Clinic is a 501(c)3 that began with apartnership with Preston Road Church of Christ. In contrast to other charity clinics that focus primarily on providing acute care to their patients, the Clinic’s care focuses on comprehensive, preventative care that addresses a wide range of chronic conditions, including diabetes, hypertension and cardiac issues. Most charity clinics have targeted patients on Medicaid. Christ’s Family Clinic cares for the hardworking members of our community who do not get health insurance through their employer, and do not have the financial means to afford private private health insurance.

Today, the Clinic has expanded to the entire lower level of the church and patient volume, just via word-of-mouth referrals, has increased an average of 20 percent annually. The Clinic facilities include: three exam rooms, a full Ophthalmology suite, and an in-house lab. Dental care has been provided through volunteer dentists at their own offices. The Clinic is as nice as any private practice in the area. The number of volunteer physicians has grown to 16 and includes a list of specialists as well.
