Music Mentor: Day Program Aide
Get people UP and MOVING!
I think music in itself is healing.
It's an explosive expression of humanity.
It's something we are all touched by;
No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.
Do you play guitar, piano, accordion or other musical instruments? Do you enjoy working with people and encouraging them to participate in a musical or theatrical experience?
As a Day Program Aide, you will interact with adults who are challenged with mental illness. You'll plan musically-based social activities to enhance clients' socialization skills. You will share games, activities, listening, improvisation, and socialization opportunities while working with Kenneth Young Center staff.
We ask that you try to make a commitment of at least 3 months, preferably 6 months. The hours for activities will be on WEDNESDAYS from about 1 to 2 p.m. when working directly with the clients. Hours MAY BE FLEXIBLE if at all possible. We are located in Elk Grove Village. A background check is required, and you must be at least 21 years old.
