East Bay RSVP is searching for volunteer coaches interested in promoting healthy lifestyle choices for seniors, age 55 or older. Our workshops, "Healthy Eating for Successful Living in Older Adults" ,"A Matter of Balance" and "Walking with Ease", are nationally evidence-based programs proven to educate and empower communities. We need your help to facilitate workshops with our team so we can help our senior community members live at home longer. These workshops focus on prevention as a powerful tool to living longer.
What will you do?
Lead workshops with one of our team members, either a trained staff members (who are experienced master trainers) or an experienced coach) with small groups of community (between 8-12 people).
How will you do it?
We provide training sessions for our coaches so they may review the material with someone from our team. We also discuss tips about facilitating workshops.
When and where are these workshops?
They are in your community! We work in East Providence, Barrington, Warren, Bristol, Tiverton, Portsmouth, Middletown, and Newport. The workshops are scheduled throughout the year in one of those communities. We schedule workshops with local community organizations to be accessible to community members in need.
How can I get involved?
