Help participants engage in music, art exercise, and meals by providing visual and verbal cues as you participate in the same activities with the group. Activity Leaders (45min -1 hour once a month, quarter, or year +/-) lead art, music, exercise, conversational activities, service projects, or other projects that match your interests and provide structured socialization with a purpose for the group.
