Volunteer opportunity description

¡Hola! Spanish class is one of our popular activities at Norwood Crossing. Among many other activities, residents enjoy learning a new language. Their main goal is to acquire simple words and phrases that they use on a daily basis - such as greetings and introductions, foods, clothing, etc. We like to keep it interactive and fun for the residents.

If you are creative, flexible, and able to commit to a weekly program, then we would love to meet you! 
 
Classes take place Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:30 to 2:30 pm. There is a computer that volunteers can use for research and prepare reading material for the participants. Volunteers should plan on being here 1 ½ hours each day.

• You will make a difference in the lives of our senior residents
