StrongerU Senior Fitness Student Sponsorship Program

The StrongerU Senior Fitness Student Sponsorship Program pairs students from programs such as Therapeutic Recreation, Health and Physical Education, Kinesiology, Gerontology, and more, with senior-serving organizations such as retirement communities and senior centres. Two students will be selected from the applicant pool to receive free access to the StrongerU Senior Fitness Online Instructor Course and a one year subscription to the StrongerU Senior Fitness Series which provides instructors with 30 minutes of new StrongerU Senior Fitness class content each month. In exchange, the successful applicants will volunteer their time teaching the 30-minute StrongerU Fitness Program weekly at Blue Sky Lodge in Lethbridge, AB from July to December 2020. Blue Sky Lodge is an independent seniors’ residence of the Green Acres Foundation. Green Acres Foundation is a non-profit housing management body established by Ministerial Order by the Province of Alberta. They have been providing affordable supportive housing to seniors of the City of Lethbridge, Lethbridge County, and the Towns of Picture Butte, Coaldale, Coalhurst, and Nobleford, as well as the Village of Barons since 1960 and are one of the largest providers of seniors housing in Alberta. You can learn more about the Green Acres Foundation by visiting their website at https://www.greenacres.ab.ca/
