What We're Looking For
We are looking for passionate, responsible, outgoing, and caring high school and college students. Working with senior citizens, especially those who are experiencing cognitive decline is not always an easy task, so these qualities are paramount. Above all else, this is a commitment, and volunteers must be responsible regarding attendance. Passion and care are necessary qualities in volunteers, because those who interact with the seniors in our program need to be attentive, interested, and able to drive conversation to comfort them. Unfortunately, these seniors may sometimes be very delicate in their condition, but volunteers with these qualities can forge significant bonds that will truly bring a light into their lives. If the volunteer we’ve described sounds like you, then please enroll in our program, and we’ll contact you to arrange your initial training. We will then pair you with a peer mentor to help familiarize you with how we operate, and assist you with initial conversations.
