We hold 2 weekly Parkinson's Exercise classes in North Austin on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30 am- 11:30 am, and are looking for regular volunteers who can commit to assisting once or twice a week, a long-term commitment would be greatly appreciated.

Volunteer responsibilities include arriving 15 minutes early to help set up the room, signing in participants when they arrive, some light balance spotting, and assistance with handing out equipment during class. If interested, you can try a class before committing to ensure that it is a good fit. We have an incredibly warm and grateful group of instructors and attendees, so we feel sure you'll love it!

We offer 10 classes each week in 8 locations all around Austin, so if this time doesn't work, we'd love to help you find one that does! Contact us for more information.

Mission Statement

Power for Parkinson’s (PFP) is a rapidly expanding non-profit organization that provides a wide variety of completely free mind & body fitness classes for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners. Our mission is to improve the well-being of people with Parkinson's disease through group fitness and social interaction, both of which have been proven highly beneficial for people with Parkinson’s. We achieve this mission through local in-person classes and events in the greater Austin area and through our YouTube channel, which is the #1 Parkinson’s Fitness channel on YouTube. We are excited to expand our volunteer team locally in Austin, TX.

Description

Power for Parkinson’s was founded in 2013 on the idea that the Parkinson's community needed a welcoming, inclusive space to meet and engage in group exercise. Since then, the organization has provided free weekly exercise, dance, and singing classes to hundreds of people living with Parkinson's in the Austin community. Power for Parkinson’s participants look forward to their weekly classes and social events, have an improved sense of well being, and report they are doing better physically, emotionally, and socially. In addition to weekly classes in the Austin, TX area, Power for Parkinson's has build a global community providing free at-home exercise videos via YouTube. The videos have since been viewed in over 160 countries around the world.
