Training for Volunteers 55+ to Lead Groups on Successful Aging
Are you interested in “Touching Lives” of older adults? Touching Lives Over 55, a program of Journey’s Way, currently is seeking dynamic volunteers to lead peer discussion groups on health and wellness, life after retirement, and successful aging. For twelve years, more than 170 volunteers ages 55-90 have lead “Next Chapter” discussion groups with over 4,900 older adults across Philadelphia!
Volunteers must be at least 55 and enjoy working with people, have excellent listening skills, and provide their own transportation. Discussion groups meet weekly in senior community centers throughout Philadelphia. Peer Leaders learn new skills, meet new people, and enrich lives!
The next training starts on July 25 and runs through August 22 at Journey’s Way, 403 Rector Street in Roxborough. To apply to become a Volunteer Peer Leader and begin writing your next chapter, contact Jan Zacharjasz at 215- 487-1750 ext. 1214 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
