Volunteer Training

October 11, 2017
9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Concord Park Assisted Living

Help us deliver monthly programming to our partners!

Our volunteers are the backbone of our programs.  Join us for a volunteer training session to learn about our methodology, and how you can help bring joy to our partner sites.

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.

Volunteer Training will be led by our Program Coordinators and 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.

Must register in advance.  If interested, please email:  [email protected] by Oct. 7, 2017.
