Last updated 5/10/2021 at 4:26pm
Volunteering can help you make a difference and be a part of the community while meeting new people and having fun. Join the Blue Zones Project – Brevard (BZP) team on Thursday, May 20, as they host volunteer and ambassador training for anyone interested in being an integral part of the local Blue Zones Project – Brevard team, as it helps transform health and well-being in the community.
If you are interested in learning more about the Blue Zones Project and serving on a committee, helping with walking moais, cooking classes, purpose workshops or special events, join the local team for this one-hour session on May 20.
“We will hold three different sessions to keep groups small and to be flexible with back-to-work schedules,” said Tammy Hopkins, engagement lead with BZP said. “There will be a session at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on May 20. We are looking for a number of volunteers to help us with events, programs, tracking and reporting, and serving as BZP Ambassadors to help spread the word about our community well-being work and our Blue Zones Project classes and programs.”
Register by emailing [email protected] and sign up for a volunteer training session. The sessions will be held at the Blue Zones Project – Brevard office located at 191 W. Main St. – Suite B in downtown Brevard.
Brought to Brevard through an innovative sponsorship by the Pisgah Health Foundation in collaboration with Sharecare, Inc., and Blue Zones, LLC, Blue Zones Project is a community-by-community well-being improvement initiative designed to enable community members to live longer, happier lives with lower rates of chronic diseases and a higher quality of life.
Based on principles developed by Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and New York Times best-selling author of “The Blue Zones” and “The Blue Zones Solution,” Blue Zones Project is designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to the built environment, policy, and social networks.
