Established in 2015, Reaching Every Neighbor Every Way (RENEW) is an education, enrichment, and life skills program open to anyone regardless of service area. RENEW is designed to improve the quality of life and nutrition of our neighbors in need through opportunities to learn and develop skills that will set them on a path of healthy living.
Volunteers are needed to teach and facilitate these information seminars on topics such as nutrition and food preparation, stress management/coping strategies, physical activity, and job skills/employment training. As a educator, you will have the opportunity to directly serve and empower neighbors in need through these education and training opportunities.
Time Commitment: The volunteer is assigned to one day per week for 2 or more weeks depending on the class. Classes should not exceed one hour.
Qualifications: Specific background or interest in an area relating to job skills, health, budgeting/finance, etc. We are looking for volunteers with a positive outlook, patience, and dependability.
Support: The AmeriCorps VISTA will be available for questions and assistance.
Dress Code: Casual
