Volunteer Opportunity for Students at MetroWest Free Medical Program. 

Message

For students interested in learning administrative skills while being part of an organization providing medical care: 
We have room for a few more volunteers on the administrative team (Patient Discharge/Checkout) who are interested in helping explain next steps and discharge instructions to patients who come to see our doctors.

Here is  a link to our volunteer opportunities listing on Idealist.org:https://www.idealist.org/en/volunter-opportunity/818442082a37434ab7167980a793c75d-patient-checkout-desk-at-a-free-medical-program-in-metrowest-metrowest-free-medical-program-sudbury

 This could be a wonderful opportunity for students interested in healthcare, administration, or non-profits. It's a good opportunity to learn some skills, make some good references, and do something meaningful. Please let me know if you have any questions. I can also be reached on my cell: 860-319-1659
Thank you! Andis Vildavs MetroWest Free Medical Program

Intergenerational Opportunities senior Center/Sud. Elem. Schools
mailto:LipkinJ@sudbury.ma.us
      LINC (Learning Intergenerational Community),
A Collaborative Project of the Sudbury Schools and Sudbury Senior Center.
LINC is an after school program, connecting generations through activities and discussions. Our sessions are relaxed, purposeful, and fun!
       LINC meetings include teacher-led discussions, informal conversations, and hands-on activities. At each meeting elementary students and Senior Volunteers team up on a variety of challenging projects, including STEAM activities (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics).

There are two LINC programs for Fall, 2019.

Format 1—The six-meeting LINC series will meet at a Sudbury elementary school during November and December on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 3 -5 pm.

Format 2—A once-a-month series will meet at the Parks and Recreation Dept. (also the home of the Sudbury Senior Center) on ‘Wild Wednesdays’ (early release days) from 3-5:15 pm throughout the school year.

Role of the High School Volunteer(s)
On LINC meeting days:
Attend LINC meetings (either or both formats) and assist the LINC teachers and Senior Center Program Coordinator by helping prepare and organize program materials, and assist and/or participate directly in discussions and STEAM activities.

Additional preparation meetings can be arranged:
If interested, the student volunteer(s) can assist the Senior Center Intergenerational Coordinator in behind-the-scenes projects such as: researching intergenerational programs, developing new STEAM activities, creating activity packets or kits for LINC meetings.

Please note: student volunteers can choose to come to only a couple of the sessions, not all in the series.

If you would like to be a volunteer for the LINC program, please contact Judy Battat at BattatJ@sudbury.ma.us. Contact Sudbury LINC
