Help us deliver live animals and nature to people in need.The Nature Connection

We are holding a free Basic Volunteer Training session on Saturday, Nov 18th from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at Concord Park Senior Living, Community Room (68 Commonwealth Ave, Concord, MA 01742 ).   Training is open to individuals who would like to help deliver our nature-based therapeutic programs.

Volunteers should have experience or interest in environmental education, psychology, social work, occupational therapy or the arts; or have worked with people with disabilities, youth, elders or animals. We ask volunteers to make a year-long commitment, at least once a month for two hours. Participation in this workshop is required for new volunteers who would like to help deliver life-changing programs to some of our community’s most vulnerable members.

Basic Volunteer Training will consist of an introduction to The Nature Connection and an overview of the organization’s program methodology. You will experience a sample nature program, including safe handling of natural materials and live therapy animals.

REGISTER:   Must register in advance.  If interested, please email:  [email protected] by Nov. 17, 2017.  For more information about The Nature Connection see our website at www.nature-connection.org/volunteering.
