We can’t do it without YOU!

 

Council on Aging serves approximately 1,400 seniors each day of the week and another 300 on the weekend. We could not even begin to take such good care of this community’s older adults without our more-than 1300 volunteers each year.

 

Volunteer Opportunities Include:

Meals on Wheels Drivers deliver meals to homebound seniors. 

 

Adult Day Respite Program Volunteers assist with discussion, exercise, entertainment, crafts and/or food service.

 

Front Desk Receptionist performs a variety of clerical tasks (previous clerical experience is a must and understanding of Gmail is required).

 

Pro- Bono Attorneys and Volunteer Paralegals help out in our senior legal services department.

 

Senior Peer Support Volunteers work with seniors who need emotional support. Training Included

 

Bistro/Dining Site Helper assists in setting tables, acting as a host/hostess, serving meals to participants or cleaning up after meal service.

 

Chef Prep. assists the Meals on Wheels kitchen staff with meal prep. This is the only volunteer position that counts towards community service hours for court referral.

 

Special Events Volunteers help us accomplish fabulous fundraising events, such as our annual Derby After Dark fundraising event and Sonoma Wine Country Games.

Each volunteer applicant is interviewed, receives an orientation to Council on Aging’s services, and training pertaining to their placement.

 

All volunteers who will work directly with senior clients must have a criminal background check.
