Choir Care Coordinator - Music Moves Hartford Street Choir
We are looking for someone to come and talk with our choir members about their extra-musical needs on a one-to-one basis. For example, we recently helped a few people fill out the appropriate paperwork to obtain free a free cell phone and wireless service. We would like someone who can start informal conversations so that we can start to meet their needs in small ways where it is possible. We want to strengthen the trust, friendship, and community in our group. Our primary staff is busy with the musical and administrative aspects, so we'd like someone who can focus just on their care. It would involve 3 hours per month with us (every other Wednesday from 10:45am to 12:15pm), and an estimated additional 2 hours per month researching and finding ways to meet needs. Needs might include: assistance filling out forms for shelter or other services; clothing; basic household needs; job recommendations (which can be provided by the choir's music director to long-term participants); help locating and applying for educational programs; etc. While we know we will not be able to meet every request, we would like to better get to know their needs and do what we can to provide or link them with a provider. Our group is very upbeat and fun- come be a part of our family!
This opportunity is great if you have volunteer or internship requirements in your pursuit of studying social work or psychology. However, any person with an open and compassionate heart can fill the role!

About CUATRO PUNTOS
45 CHURCH ST, HARTFORD, CT 06103, US
Cuatro Puntos is dedicated to intercultural dialogue and universal access through the performance, writing, and teaching of music.
"Cuatro Puntos" means "four points" in Spanish and is a multi-faceted, arts non-profit organization that uses music for social change and empowerment of the underserved. We have host a multi-cultural concert series in Connecticut, the Music Moves Hartford Street Choir for homeless and food/housing insecure residents, and Music/Curriculum Alignment programs in school classrooms. Our roster of professional, resident musicians collaborate with local, national, and international guest artists to produce genre-defying and culturally significant concert programing and album recordings. Our street choir fills the city with song. Here music is not a museum- it is a living, breathing part of society and a relevant vehicle for addressing social issues. Our ongoing programming takes place in Connecticut in Hartford, Glastonbury, and Norwich- however we do frequent concerts, school visits, and collaborations around the country and the world.
We'll work with your schedule.
