JCC Chicago's Violins of Hope Trained Volunteers will facilitate educational programming for students and community members and accompany musicians performing short musical programs. Trained Volunteer will present and lead discussions by sharing the stories of the violins and may be joined by a Holocaust Survivor or 2nd generation family member; Trained Volunteer will also moderate Q&A sessions. In addition to training on program content, volunteers will also receive directions on facilitating the transportation of the violins from a JCC-designated location to educational, religious and community facilities around the Chicagoland area, including the city, suburbs, and other surrounding areas like Champaign-Urbana.
Trained Volunteers will be required to complete the following training program in advance of project launch:
* In advance of formal training session, volunteer will review a recorded presentation with an introduction of the project with Avshi Weinstein, Violins of Hope Founder.
* Volunteers will attend a 90-minuted training program, which will be offered in-person and via Zoom.
* Optional: attend a Meet & Greet program with the Violins at the Bernard Weinger JCC on Monday, April 24, 2023, 4-6pm.
All community members are welcome to join the Trained Volunteer team. Knowledge of music and/or the Holocaust, helpful, but not required, a teaching background is also advantageous. Be prepared to facilitate discussions on the topic.
Each volunteer will ideally facilitate a minimum of five 45-60-minuted community engagement programs between April 24 and July 2, 2023 based in preferred geographic areas. To capitalize on offering programs while the school year is still in session, the first 4 weeks of programming (April 29-May 19) will be front-loaded with multiple programs daily. For planning purposes, volunteers should prioritize these dates.
A link to a shared calendar will be provided, so volunteers may sign up the dates, times and locations that are most convenient.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
