The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Help volunteer for the Active Life for a Healthy Mind Program.
We are looking for sporting enthusiasts (ie. Basketball, Baseball, Tennis, etc.) who are interested in sharing their passion with individuals who are striving to embark on having a more active and healthy lifestyle through our Active Life for a Healthy Mind program. We have regularly scheduled activities for individuals who self-identify with anxiety and/or depression.
Volunteers would be expected to help in guiding individuals in these activities, while maintaining a fun and safe atmosphere during the activity. Candidates volunteering in this capacity should be proficient in the basic skills of the sport(s) in which they would volunteer to lead and be interested in teaching them to individuals with little or no experience with them.
Active Life for a Healthy Mind activities will be held throughout the northern NJ/Tristate area.
