February 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Tuesday, repeating until March 14, 2017

Are you interested in “Touching Lives” of older adults? Touching Lives Over 55, a program of Journey’s Way, currently is recruiting volunteers to facilitate peer discussion groups about health and wellness, successful aging, retirement, and life experiences. For ten years, more than 150 volunteers ages 55-90 have lead “Next Chapter” discussion groups with over 3600 older adults across Philadelphia!

Volunteers must be at least 55 and enjoy working with people, have good listening skills, and provide their own transportation. Discussion groups meet weekly in senior community centers throughout Philadelphia, including KleinLife, Northeast Older Adult Center, and others. Peer Leaders learn new skills, meet new people, and enrich lives!

The next training starts on February 14 and runs through March 14 at Journey’s Way, 403 Rector Street in Roxborough. For more information about how to become a Volunteer Peer Leader and begin writing your next chapter, contact Jan Zacharjasz at 215-487-1750, Ext. 1214 or email: jzacharjasz@intercommunityaction.org.
