Notice: Outreach opportunity at The Gardens at Town Square

The-Gardens-at-Town-Square-senior-living-landscape-front-of-building-downtown-Bellevue

The Gardens at Town Square is a retirement community in Bellevue that is seeking student lectures or presentations for their well-educated residents.  They are looking for students who are knowledgeable about a particular topic for a 45 minute presentation with a short Q&A session at the end.  They are open to any topic, but would like a detailed overview to be submitted beforehand.  They have a theatre with a projector, screen, laptops, clicker/laser pointer, and sound system.  A typical talk brings in 8 to 30 residents depending on the topic.  This is a great opportunity for students to practice their presentations in a local supportive environment.  Some of our most dynamic students presenters have worked with The Gardens at Town Square and we recommend the experience.

If you are interested, please contact Tiffany Dunnington, Life Enrichment Assistant at 425-688-1900.
