Help support adults with developmental challenges in a fun-filled therapeutic movement group, "Movers & Shakers", that meets Wednesdays, 4:00-4:45 at the Hancock Center. (There is also a need for help before the group starts and after the group ends if you are available).

"Moves & Shakers" is a small group with participants who have cognitive delays, experience life on the autism spectrum and have some physical needs. You will assist the facilitator and help join and engage the participants as we move together with music to create meaningful connections and relationships, promote healthy body image, increase range of motion, and improve self-esteem. Previous experience with children or adults with special needs is helpful along with a comfort with dance and movement.

There is currently opportunity to assist in a group for adults with developmental delays. This is a weekly volunteer commitment.

DANCE/MOVEMENT THERAPY AIDE in Group at Memory Care Facility/Residence

We have volunteer opportunities available working as an aide. Volunteers will assist facilitators and support the residents in following the movement activities.

Led by Dance/Movement Therapist Genevieve Dunn, MA, R-DMT.

Applicants should have experience working with people and a comfort level with movement (no dance skills required). Your own transportation is needed. Approximate time commitment is one hour and 50 minutes per week.

Please contact Genevieve Dunn at genevieve@hancockcenter.net


Hancock Center is in a Victorian building that is over 100 years old. We would be grateful to find someone who could help us with various building projects as they arise. Our building is always in need of some repair and interior painting. In the summer we would also benefit from landscaping in our front and backyard. This could be an on-going or "on-call" position.
Current (June 2018) needs: yardwork, landscaping, cleaning up exterior porches (sweeping, washing siding, etc.) and/or general maintenance.
