About

Since 1974, Shanti has been providing emotional and practical support to people who are living with life-threatening illnesses. Shanti serves over 2,000 San Franciscans living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, or other disabilities, most of whom are low-income and socially isolated.

Many of our clients are isolated seniors and could use basic technological support! Their needs are usually using the internet, emailing, Facebook, etc. Our newest volunteer opportunity is providing "as needed" tech. support to seniors. Some of the needs are basic as stated above, and some could be more in-depth, so if you are a computer wiz, we’d love to have you!

If you are interested in utilizing your technological skill set to enhance the life of a senior citizen who could use the support, we encourage you to contact us and learn more about this opportunity.

  • You don’t need to be incredibly technologically savvy

  • Any basic computer skills, phone skills, and electronic device knowledge is very helpful in teaching clients

  • This is an "as needed" volunteer opportunity

  • You will be providing support in the client’s home

  • You will join a community of thoughtful, supportive volunteers and staff

  • You can make an invaluable difference to our senior clients

If you are interested in volunteering with us or have any questions, please contact Shanti's Volunteer Services at 415-674-4708 or email volunteerservices@shanti.org.
