Volunteer Opportunity - Train to be a Bone Builders Teacher!

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on September 11, 2017

Join us and help 20 seniors, many of whom have osteoporosis or osteopenia who are currently waiting for a Bone Builders teacher in Gaithersburg. Besides Gaithersburg, there are five other classes in other parts of Montgomery County that need caring, somewhat active people who want to train with us and then help others (and themselves) maintain and/or increase their bone mass. In the free training we provide, you will learn our evidence-based exercises and also learn about teaching seniors. Most of our teachers are seniors who derive enormous satisfaction working with people like Linda, an 87-year-old woman whose doctor strongly urged her to take these classes to help build bone mass naturally. You might be able to help Jenny, a 75-year old woman who fell earlier this year who has been helped enormously by our balance exercises. Or, you might be able to help John, a 92-year old who loves being around other seniors and wants to help his thinning bones and deteriorating balance. It's the perfect volunteer job for people wanting to exercise at the same time they help others in a very meaningful, important way.

We have volunteers with a huge variety of backgrounds. Our 10-hour training (five hours for two days) and required visits to three ongoing classes will prepare you to teach. The classes meet two days weekly, one-hour each day, so you will be required to teach both days. We know everyone takes vacations, etc, so you will have flexibility and each class has two teachers, allowing for absences.
