Finger Lakes Living Healthy AmeriCorps matches motivated volunteer 'members' with Host Sites throughout Wayne, Ontario, Seneca, Yates and Cayuga counties.
Members enroll to complete a 900 hour commitment ending on December 6, 2018.
All Members will be trained to become Peer Leaders in the empowering Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. CDSMP teaches participants healthy and effective ways to manage symptoms associated with chronic illness. These workshops will be delivered at their Host Site, to benefit customers of the Host Site.
Members will also have other varied opportunities to learn and grow new skills during their 900 hour term.
