Turn Your Specialty Into a Volunteer Opportunity

Our seniors have many different interests, so we welcome all kinds of ways to educate and entertain them.
Here are a few ideas for you or your group:

For Individuals:

  • Lead a sing-along
  • Start a book club or read aloud to seniors
  • Chat with someone in their primary language
  • Play chess or board games with our participants
  • Share your knowledge at a lunchtime talk
  • Offer a dance class or just dance with our seniors
  • Create a sewing circle or show others how to do it

For Groups:

  • Host an ice cream social
  • Art projects, theatre and music are welcome
  • Accompany seniors to a park, museum or another outing
  • Play pool noodle polo, chair volleyball or other games with seniors
  • Teach an IT or technology class to help seniors hone and learn new computer skills

The possibilities are endless!
