A few hours per week
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
21 Pine Street
We are looking for volunteers 55 and over. Do you or someone you know suffer from a chronic condition? Are you a caregiver of someone who suffers from a chronic condition? Do you want to learn and pass the word on to others in your community? Become a trained Peer Leader. You will be taught how to teach others to better manage their conditions through education and the setting of realistic short- and long-term goals. This is a results-based program out of Stanford University.
Besides this “Take Control of Your Health” program, we are looking for volunteers for our “Diabetes Self-Management” program and our “Cancer: Thriving & Surviving” program.
ALL TRAINING AND MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED FOR FREE. Many of our peer leaders have taken the program as a participant and became leaders. You do not have to participate in the workshops to become a leader. Just call and we can get you trained.
If this is of interest to you, contact Nancy at 973-784-4900 ext. 208, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
