Assist With Art Projects at Senior Living Community
26 people are interested
We are looking for 8 volunteers who will be working one-on-one with our dementia residents, once a week, in our "Opening Minds through Art," or OMA, program. Volunteers should be open to the process of art and not the finished art product. The focus of this program is about the relationship between the volunteer and resident as well as the ability for self expression through art.
The program will be held on Tuesdays from 3:15-4:30pm for 10 weeks, beginning on June 11th. There will be two mandatory training sessions on May 28th and June 4th for all volunteers -both sessions will be from 3:15-5PM at Montereau. There will also be an art show for the residents and volunteers after the ten week session on August 27th from 4:30-6:00pm.
We would love to have student volunteers who are interested in older adults and/or art programs. OMA is a wonderful, rewarding program that brings people from different generations together while forming special bonds and relationships.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
