Summer volunteer slots are available for seniors

June 10, 2011

There are a number of volunteer opportunities this summer for men and women 55 and older.

Here are just a few:

  •  Middle school sessions run from June 27 to July 21, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Thursday (no Fridays); full or part-time volunteers welcome. Volunteers assist students with standard subject needs within a new project focus developed by the teacher.

  •  The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts has 87 programs that run from mid-June through the first week in August. There are art adventure classes for those ages 6 to 8 in which a volunteer acts as a teacher's assistant. The teacher would present an art project to the group and the volunteer would help individual children with their interpretation of the project.

  •  Hagerstown Community College's College for Kids goes on all summer with titles for each week's program. There are many breaks during the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. sessions. Time is apportioned in restful ways with recesses and lunch breaks. In addition, volunteers can ask to serve for portions of a week.

If interested in any of these programs, call Charlotte Levens, intergenerational program coordinator at the Commission on Aging, at 301-790-0275, ext. 230, or email clevens@wccoaging.org.
