About

Join us and become a Volunteer in 2017.

Do you have a passion to help seniors? Do you want to be trained in Medicare and be able to speak about Medicare to people in your community?

If so then become a Community Outreach Educator and volunteer with the Senior LinkAge Line.

Share information about the Senior LinkAge Line, Medicare, health care fraud, and long term care insurance to community groups. Help by providing staffing at community events like health fairs, senior expos, conferences, and other senior community events where the Senior LinkAge Line exhibits. Your work will be primarily in your community however there are opportunities to volunteer in the entire Arrowhead Region of Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake, and St. Louis counties.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact us. Upon a successful background check and the completion of the three-day training class volunteers will receive certification through the Minnesota Board on Aging as a Health Insurance Counselor with the State Health Insurance and Assistance Program (SHIP).

Our next three-day training class will be held in Duluth from 9 AM to 4 PM on Monday and Tuesday April 17 and 18 and the following Monday, April 24, 2017.

Volunteers will receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance and outreach to seniors.

If you are interested in this opportunity, or have questions, please contact me. Please contact Lee Swenson, Volunteer Coordinator with the Senior LinkAge Line at 218-529-7539.
