The Center for Aging in Place and its member groups welcome volunteers, both young and old. No matter how much time you are willing to donate or your skill level, we are sure to have a job for you.
Here are some of the many ways your volunteering efforts can impact communities working with The Center For Aging In Place:
- Board Service - Volunteer to be a member of our Board of Directors. Collaborative-minded leadership drives the organization's efforts and we welcome your participation.
- Administrative Support - Behind the scenes, our rockstar administrative support staff keeps this ship afloat year after year, tackling key functions like mailings, filing, etc.
- Specialized Skills - Are you a talented creative like a photographer or grant writer? Perhaps you've honed your skills as a bookkeeper, web manager, or event planner? Put your talents to good use for a great cause.
Volunteers play a vital role in maintaining Aging in Place groups. As the program becomes established, volunteers are needed to perform many functions including:
- Driving members to appointments – AIP member groups need volunteers to drive program members to their medical appointments, take them to do errands or go shopping, to worship services, or even to cultural events.
- Visiting people - You can help keep older members connected with the community by stopping in for a visit. Visiting can foster intergenerational social contact that benefits everyone.
- Share a specific skill - While Aging in Place groups refer members to screened services, such a home maintenance and home repair services, if you’re handy with a wrench, a garden trowel, or a computer, you can help with small projects in and around members’ homes.
- Plan or organize a special event - From trips to the theater to a walk in the park … from a concert in town to a trip to a new restaurant … there’s no limit to the type of activities that Aging in Place program members will enjoy.
