Love to help people believe they really matter in this world?

Kenneth Young Center is proud to have served senior citizens in our local community for over 40 years. This is your chance to work directly with some of our senior clients who need help. You will be assigned to a client who may need assistance with shopping, errands, or maybe just getting out of their homes to socialize. Your presence helps them feel like they are important and valued. Volunteers must have valid drivers licenses, current insurance, impeccable driving records, and be able to pass a fairly extensive background check. Please call us today and show someone you care!
