As always, the Hands on Portland Community Project Calendar has MANY opportunities, but not all opportunities meet the Concordia University Service Learning guidelines requiring direct work with individuals and directness in addressing community needs. Any re-posted opportunities to this blog meet the Concordia Guidelines.
Below is a re-posted opportunity from Volunteers of America that’s coming up and is available for registration through Hands on Portland’s Community Project Calendar.
Elders & Children: Support Intergenerational Activities
Both the elderly and young children can experience isolation from a lack of support and connection, especially when their caregivers are over-burdened. Build community and connection across the generations or be the ones to honor our elders with laughter and new experiences!
Join us as we help engage adults with functional and/or cognitive impairments, and engage preschoolers from our Family Relief Nursery! Activities may include crafting, art & music therapy, tai chi, and gardening. Training, supplies, lunch, and laughter included!
VOA’s Adult Day Centers feature structured programs that meet the needs of functionally and/or cognitively impaired adults. VOA’s Family Relief Nursery is a prevention/intervention program that helps to stop the cycle of child abuse & neglect while also providing development assessments and a therapeutic nursery/preschool environment for children ages six weeks through five years.
Tuesday, February 16th

Always check directly with the community partner or referring agency to register, as Concordia’s Office of Service Leadership does NOT guarantee availability at community partner opportunities**
