About

Are you a trained dance or exercise instructor? Are you being trained as an instructor and need service hours? Do you have experience working with seniors and people with disabilities, or are you looking for the chance to work with these individuals? Do you want to volunteer and make a difference in your community? Volunteer as a dance or exercise instructor for seniors living in affordable housing in Oakland!

We are looking for a volunteer to teach a dance-type exercise class for seniors living at Lakeside Senior Apartments in the Lake Merritt neighborhood of Oakland. The volunteer should have some experience working with seniors in the past, or should be able to accommodate for individuals with varying physical abilities (wheelchairs, difficulty bending down or moving quickly, etc.). The preferred start time would be in January 2016, and Monday afternoons would be the preferred date for these classes to be held. The volunteer should have sufficient training in the form of exercise that they are leading, and patience and flexibility are a must! We would prefer a 1 time per week commitment for 10-12 weeks. Bilingual in English/Chinese is a plus, but is not necessary.

ABOUT SAHA: Satellite Affordable Housing Associates is committed to providing quality, service-enriched, affordable housing in the bay area. By providing consistent, volunteer-led programming, we hope to build community at each of our properties, while offering accessible, socialization alternatives. Our hope is to provide the necessary tools for our senior residents to age in place, and to provide exciting new opportunities for our residents to build community with their fellow residents. Visit sahahomes.org for more information!

ABOUT THE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM: The volunteer program is managed by the volunteer coordinator who will follow up to your opportunity inquiries about an application and interview. Please note that we are only able to accommodate 9am-5pm Mon-Fri availability. In the interest of providing consistent activities for our residents, we ask that activities occur on a regular schedule; monthly, weekly or bi-weekly preferred. Residents greatly appreciate and look forward these activities as well as enjoying the company of volunteers who make them possible. Please sign up today!
