We are specifically seeking a Tagalog speaking Male volunteer in the Torrance area. Ideally this person would be in the Torrance area so that, when it is safe to do so, they could transition to being a Friendly Visitor. Currently, the visits will take place over the phone in the form of Friendly Phone Calls.
Do you speak Tagalog?
Do you enjoy speaking with seniors?
Are you an 18+ male in the Torrance area seeking to make a difference in an older adult's life.
