What is Medallion Manor?

BYU Medallion Manor is a program where a group of volunteers make weekly visits to Medallion Manor, homes for adults with special needs in south Provo and Springville, on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. We meet in front of the Jamba Juice in the Wilkinson Center at 6:15 and carpool.


Some of our more common activities include game nights, crafting, and open visiting (where you can talk and get to know the residents through stories, games, music, dancing, whatever you would like).


Volunteer Commitment: You don't have to put in a designated amount of hours, but we hope that once you have met our sweet heart residents, you will be eager to spread the word and join us week after week!

I initially volunteered at Medallion Manor as part of a date. I had so much fun with the residents there! We spent about half an hour playing card games and getting to know each other, but my favorite part of the night was painting fingernails with the residents! I wasn't very good at it, but they didn't seem to mind. They even gave me a few pointers for how to get better at it. Every one was so kind at Medallion Manor--the staff, the other volunteers, and especially the residents. There is a special spirit there that made me feel welcome and loved.
