What is Utah Healing Arts?
Utah Healing Arts performs for residents of local nursing homes. Volunteers share their talents through music, dance, art, theater, or by interacting with the audience members. Each event lasts about an hour. We go and sing every Friday at 2:45 pm. Our talents shows are on the first Wednesday of every month at 5:45 pm and the third Thursday of every month at 6:15 pm (bands and music groups welcome!). Volunteers choose what and how many events to attend. Meet at Jamba Juice in the Wilkinson Center for carpooling.

I learned that singing can soften the heart, especially with someone who is suffering mental and emotional trauma.
–Dylan Findley (2015)
I started out picking out a program to serve and fulfill my academic requirements. But after attending, everything changed. Seeing the smiles and gratitude on the seniors' faces made my burdens feel suddenly so unimportant. I truly felt like I made my Father in Heaven proud. I loved this semester, being a part of Y-Serve kept me on the path of spiritual progression. I am grateful. Life involves others.
