The Geezer Gallery: Volunteers needed for art/writing program

Posted by

Volunteer Opportunities Newsletter

The Geezer Gallery, a non-profit organization in Portland, Oregon needs volunteers to assist in an art/writing program that’s brought to senior communities.

The program is 3 hours a week and is 12 weeks long. Because we develop a trust culture with participants we would like someone who can help out for the duration. We explore storytelling and use art to reflect and embellish the stories. In addition to prep time, volunteers would be helping set up and tear down for classes as well as one-on-one help with participants. This is an evidence-based program which has shown to have positive aspects in aging.

We would welcome someone in the gerontology, writing, or art program. No specific degrees are required. This is an on-going program that’s brought to various communities.

If interested please contact Candyce Scott at Candyce.scott@pcc.edu or (971) 212-5761.
