If you are a good problem solver, have good analytical skills and want to exercise your brain to stay young, you would make a good SHINE Counselor. You will truly find enjoyment and satisfaction that comes with helping people feel empowered to make decisions. Potential counselors will be provided with 12 days of training. This initial time commitment is substantial but will provide you with the tools and resources needed. Counselors are typically assigned to a local Council on Aging and are asked to make a time commitment of 3-4 hours per week.
