Volunteers needed to train as instructors for senior exercise programs

Become an instructor to aid seniors to stay healthy.

Volunteer leaders are needed for both RSVP Bone Builders and Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance. No experience is necessary to become an instructor for either program, although the first training step is to attend a class and observe. Interested volunteers will need to attend training dates scheduled in October.

RSVP is an age 55+ volunteer engagement program that oversees the two distinct exercise programs designed for seniors. The program’s trained instructors make a difference in the lives of those enrolled in the class, as well as contribute to their own well-being by engaging in a regular exercise program. Both RSVP exercise programs are free and open to the public.

Volunteer positions are available in RSVP’s four-city service area of Oxnard, Ventura, Camarillo and Port Hueneme. Call 805-385-8023 to learn more about the training. To see current class locations, go to http://seniors.oxnardrec.org.

RSVP is a volunteer recruitment and placement program, helping people 55 and older find volunteer positions that match their interests, talent and available time. Oxnard RSVP has about 550 members and is locally sponsored by the City of Oxnard with grant funding from the federal Corporation for National and Community Service.
