Chances are you know someone who has fallen or who is afraid of falling.  A Matter of Balance is a proven program designed to help people manage concerns about falls and increase physical activity.  Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in northeast Texas is looking for Extension Agents and Volunteers to provide this program.  

Coaches help participants become more confident about managing falls, help to identify ways to reduce falls, and lead exercises to help increase strength and balance. Matter of Balance classes are held twice a week for 4 weeks for 2 hours each.  Two coaches are required to teach the class to participants.

What do you need to be a coach?

  • good communication and interpersonal skills
  • enthusiasm, dependability and a willingness to lead small groups of older adults
  • ability to lead low to moderate level exercise

Attend this 8 hour coach training and earn A Matter of Balance Certification.

The training will be led by Andy Crocker, Extension Specialist, Family & Community Health. Lunch will be provided.
