About

Do you want to share your passion for arts and crafts with others in a fun environment? Volunteer to lead an art class for seniors living at Linda Glen in Oakland! We are looking for a volunteer to lead the class on Thursday morning or Tuesday or Friday afternoon. You will give our residents a creative outlet to express themselves and teach them new artistic skills while fostering community. The volunteer will prepare activities for each day’s class, give the residents instructions or guidelines for the activity, and work with residents one-on-one if needed, maintaining the balance between giving them independence and support.

If you're looking to make a difference in your community, this is a wonderful opportunity to gain teaching experience with students who are eager to learn.
