About

WHO: Fun outgoing person or persons (you can team teach) willing to be trained in an evidence-based program and committed to leading that exercise program for older adults.

WHAT: The Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program - an comprehensive evidence-based exercise program for people with joint issues, pain or arthritis. OASIS will provide the training, CPR certification and materials at no cost to you. You will receive ongoing education and support from the program coordinator.

WHEN: The training is online and done at your own pace. New instructors will have an opportunity to observe and team teach until they are comfortable. Exercise class times are 2 times per week during daytime hours - usually mornings or early afternoon.

WHERE: Class locations vary - currently looking for a partner/sub for the Helotes Area and partner/sub on the West side 78207 zip code. We are identifying additional locations for fulltime instructors.

COMMITMENT: Have participants complete minimal paperwork on enrollment - take roll before each class - turn in rosters and volunteer timesheet each month and participant paperwork as needed. Lead exercise classes 2 times per week for one year. Approximately the 3 rd week of January - through December 15 th. Subs and/or Partners cover classes for vacation and other absences.
