Project description

Sound Connections is looking for an intern to do the work of Dan Cohenís Alive Inside project here at a facility in Olympia. The project involves:

  • With the help of the activities director, the residentís family and/or friends, create a playlist of music that the resident(s) enjoyed in their youth.
  • Load an iPod or other appropriate MP3 device with the music.
  • Introduce the device to the resident.
  • Report on the project.
Students are encouraged to make arrangements with an appropriate faculty member if they choose to do the internship for academic credit.
