The Hope Zone is launching our Get Fit Families! program and is looking for engaging class facilitators to lead a one-hour program the first Monday of the month (except Sept which is the 2nd Monday due to Labor Day). While it would be ideal for facilitators to be able to run through the entire program, we will consider volunteers who can only serve 2-3 times. This program is dedicated to teaching families the whys and hows of nutritious eating and exercise. Families will be doing this program together and includes:

  • Fun and interactive activities to teach important info about fitness & nutrition
  • Cooking classes
  • Family outings (optional opportunities to engage in hiking, kayaking, indoor rock climbing, etc.)

The main responsibilities of the facilitators:

  • Be able to bring motivation in a group setting
  • Be personable with the participants and show genuine interest in helping them achieve their goals
  • Work with the Executive Director and development team to provide feedback and suggestions on program material
  • Input attendance in our database system to track participation
  • Be able to set up class as necessary (everything will be provided for you) so that you are free to greet people as they come in.
  • Clean up areas used after class

If you are passionate about helping families achieve their fitness and nutrition goals, we'd love to have you on the team. NOTE: If there is any exercise to be done at the class, we will provide a certified personal trainer or instructor to facilitate that part of class. The main exercise component of this program happens on Tuesday nights.
