About

About

The Fremont Senior Center provides a second home for seniors who want the opportunity to socialize, attend a variety of classes such as exercise and internet, participate in hobby and support groups, and have a nutritous meal that is cooked fresh daily onsite.

Fremont Senior Center is an exciting and fun place, we are a very busy center. We have about 200-400 people come to our center on a daily basis to attend a fitness class, to see a HICAP counselor, to have lunch or just to socialize.

We are currently looking for a volunteer creative writing instructor who is willing to work with older adults here at the Fremont Senior Center. Looking for experience teaching creative writing, and working with seniors is helpful as well.

I'm looking for someone who can prepare a weekly lesson for the seniors, communicate effectively and kindly with all at the Fremont Senior Center. The class is held on Tuesdays from 10-11am, students would like someone who is willing to edit their writings as well. Current Structure of class is 10 minutes of instruction, 10 minutes of in class writing, and 40 minutes of reading and sharing their stories, poetry, prompts, etc. Class size is about 15-20 students.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
