6 people are interested
The Virtual Senior Center is looking for volunteers who speak Spanish fluently to lead virtual classes on topic of your choice for Older Adults. The one-hour, interactive classes are held day, evening and weekend so they will fit your schedule! The VSC program allows both homebound and active Seniors to attend classes on topics that could include Arts, History, Travel, Health, Food, New, Exercise, Brain Games, Literature and many more - it’s your choice.
We look for volunteer Facilitators (18+) who can commit to a flexible recurring schedule that could be weekly, alternate weeks or monthly. This is a great opportunity to share your interests with a group of Seniors who are looking for community, social interaction, learning and enjoyment! Let’s set up a phone chat to discuss the program and your interests.
