Lead with Experience – Volunteer to be a Peer Leader

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Do you or someone you know have a long-term health condition? Would you like to meet new people, develop leadership and other valuable skills? We’re looking for open-minded, friendly individuals who are comfortable speaking in front of small groups and enjoy helping people. Volunteer peer leaders have been found to gain the same health benefits as Living Healthy workshop participants! You’ll teach important self-management skills and help other older adults learn to take charge of chronic conditions like arthritis, high blood pressure and chronic pain. Volunteering with us you’ll have the opportunity to share what you’ve learned about self-care with others!  Peer leaders team up to teach the six week program in weekly 2½ hour sessions. Workshops are held each spring and fall.  Workshop materials are scripted and content for the workshop is provided for you and easy to use!  Free training and ongoing support from our project coordinator.
