Friendship Center is a fully licensed, non-profit adult day program that brings joy and purpose to the lives of ageing adults and seniors, many of whom having a dementia diagnosis. Our day program runs Monday through Friday from 9:00AM-4:00PM, during which we offer live music, SBCC Vitality classes, art and aromatherapy, gardening, pet therapy and more!
We are currently looking for two or three volunteers to lead our brand new BrainFit Class for a small group of seniors (<10) 1-3 times per week throughout the summer. Friendship Center will provide all training and materials while also encouraging the volunteer to be creative in any way he or she decides. Activities for the BrainFit Class include word games and puzzles, trivia, lessons on chosen topics of interest and more.
At the end of the summer, the volunteer will be given a certificate certifying their training in Brain Fitness activities and community service to the aging population.
This opportunity is perfect for high school students interested in teaching, psychology, social work, healthcare or a career in working with older adults.
Please contact Kathryn for more information on this exciting opportunity! We look forward to hearing from you!
