About

Everyone has a skill or interest they can share with others. We're looking for volunteers willing to share their talents or expertise with participants in our Adult Day Service program by leading lessons and/or interactive activities. Lesson Leader volunteers plan their own activities and curriculum, and lessons can cover almost any topic, such as:

  • Education: Geography, science, history, language arts
  • Business: Talk about your experience in business or key business skills
  • Art: Painting, drawing, art history, dance, theater
  • Music: History, genres, music around the world
  • Literature: Tell a story, read a book, or help participants create their own
  • Hobbies: Lead a lesson on something you love - gardening, superheroes, photography

Opportunities available: M-F 9:00am-3:00pm

When planning lessons, look for ways to make them interactive for program participants. Think about ways to engage the senses - can you bring something participants can touch, see, hear, or smell?

New ideas for lesson topics are welcome! Please contact our Marketing and Volunteer Coordinator, Stacey Krueger, at kruegers@ucpheartland.org or 636-779-2278 to discuss ideas and get started.
