Course Series in
Caring Clown

This program is for adults 50+ who want to make a difference by bringing joy, laughter, and fun into the lives of long-term care residents. This unique, hands-on program trains volunteers to bring cheer to residents in long-term care homes. Caring Clown courses offer playful exercises, informative discussions, and skill-building activities that develop imagination, spontaneity, and musicality. In addition, working closely with long-term care homes, a practicum provides an opportunity for the Caring Clown to gain experience.
