Community Gym Volunteer
We are a residential care facility for adults living physical disabilities. Many of our tenants enjoy and benefit from 1:1 exercises with volunteers. We are seeking an enthusiastic 1:1 exercise volunteer to assist tenants who would like to do exercise in their local gym. Some of our tenants are independent in the community, and some are not. This role would involve taking transit to and from the local gym, providing assistance physically as needed as well as with following an established gym routine. This role would be well suited for students or professionals in the field of Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Recreation Therapy and/or Kinesiology. Each volunteer will be orientated to the tenants individual exercise routine that has been created by our resident physiotherapist. We do ask that volunteers are able to make a longer-term weekly commitment for this position due to the administrative and orientation time needed for this role.
The volunteer would receive valuing experience supporting one of our tenants in the community to reach her personal goals.
