Java Music Club is a program created to encourage socialization through the use of discussion, reminiscing and music. The program consists of choosing a weekly theme for the program and building discussions off of that theme. We use discussion questions, photos, music and quotes. Java Music also uses a traditional aboriginal talking stick which will ensure participants can talk without being interrupted. The program cultivated meaningful emotional engagement. Training is provided, we will require a copy of your booster shot. Volunteers would need to be over the age of 18 to help support this program.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Volunteers will use their skills to engage residents actively and to enhance the social connections with residents. Volunteers will feel the sense of friendship and belonging by participating in the program.
How will the organization benefit?
We cannot run our activities and programs with out the support of volunteers. They are a huge component in our ability to provide socialization and decrease the feeling of loneliness in long term care.
