About

Through the nationally-recognized Music & Memory program (https://musicandmemory.org/), our trained volunteers use individually-curated playlists on iPod Shuffles to help patients with dementia.

We are looking for a detailed-oriented iTunes guru to manage the playlists behind that program. Ideally, you are someone who's good at developing systems and enjoys teaching other volunteers to use iPods, work with and edit playlists, and track music interests and requests. Our current Music & Memory program volunteer manager will train you, and you'll work together (at least initially).

You'll be responsible for helping to manage the music library on our Windows 10 laptop: buying music within a budget, creating playlists, loading iPods, and helping our direct care volunteers use the technology with their patients.

You'll need to be in the San Mateo area (Foster City, San Mateo, Burlingame) so that it's easy for volunteers to meet with you to pick up the iPods.

We'll train you (in the Music & Memory program and in our current system), and then you'll volunteer in our office or at your home on a flexible schedule (based on patients' needs and meetings with other volunteers).
