Moving for Better Balance new instructor training. It’s the first public training we’ve had since COVID began. The classes we have in Ventura have long wait lists and we need new instructors to be able to meet the community’s needs.
Moving for Better Balance. No experience is necessary to become an instructor, although the first training step is to attend a class and observe. Interested volunteers will need to attend training dates scheduled in August.
RSVP is an age 55+ volunteer engagement program that oversees two distinct exercise programs designed for seniors (the other program is the popular RSVP Bone Builders program for which there will be a new instructor training soon). 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. Participation in the TCMBB classes is 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 805-385-8019 to learn more about the training. To attend the training, please RSVP by August 12.
