Description

NWTC Service Days: Brown County Memory Cafe - Painting Rocks to "Pay it Forward"


Organizational Information: The Brown County Memory Café provides a fun, comfortable environment where people with early-stage memory loss along with their companion and/or caregiver can relax, engage, and enjoy the company of others who are on the same journey. This project is focused on educating the public, businesses and government entities on effective strategies for working with individuals with dementia and their caregivers.

Opportunity Description: Students will be assigned to assist in the area in which the organization has the most need on the day of their service. Such activities might include event set-up, greeting, helping participants participate in an art activity, interacting and engaging in conversation, providing assistance for participants and caregivers, getting refreshments for participants, and general event assistance.

Requirements: Service hours are allocated based on the amount time spent on required online pre-training (1 Hour), completing background checks, and direct service participation; and do not include transportation to/from service site. Students can expect to receive 4 hours of service for this activity. Please dress in clothing appropriate for working, no risque or vulgar clothing.

*Important*

Before the day of the service activity, and as part of your service hours, each volunteer must complete and provide verification of taking the online Dementia Training. Each volunteer must also complete a background check.

  • Dementia Training: Volunteers will receive a link to the course in their registration confirmation email and must either print the course completion certificate or email the certificate to rachel.scheffen@nwtc.edu. The course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
  • Background Check: Volunteers will be required to complete a criminal background check.

Details: Registered participants will meet at the Green Bay Botanical Garden by 12:30 pm. Upon arrival, follow event signage to the Memory Cafe event and ask for the NWTC Service Day Leader at the registration table to check-in and receive service assignments.

Number of Volunteers Maximum: 5 students.
