Sourcewise Ambassador Program
Human connection, fellowship and friendship is good for the mind and soul. Volunteers bring a little joy and companionship to homebound seniors in our community. Do you love a good conversation? The Sourcewise Ambassador Program is a perfect volunteer opportunity for you. Whether it’s a few minutes or an hour, a wellness call helps our elders feel connected.

By joining our Ambassador’s Program, you will positively impact the lives of our fellow older adult community members by helping to prevent social isolation and loneliness.

Additionally, Ambassadors have the opportunity to mobilize during weather-related emergencies such as excessive heat, fires, and flooding and assist in providing emergency wellness calls. Together, we can take care of each other.

Volunteer Duties:
- Conduct calls to a short list of seniors on a weekly basis, sometimes bi-monthly. The calls may range from a few minutes or more, depending on the needs of the senior. Some participants enjoy a longer in-depth conversation while others prefer a simple check-in call.
- Report volunteer hours on a weekly basis on a simple Microsoft Form weblink
- Provide updates to the Volunteer Coordinator for any issues, needs or concerns of the older adult

**California Residents Only, preferably from Santa Clara County**

Only California residents are eligible, preferably within or near Santa Clara County, as volunteers are required to complete a background check process, which is paid for by Sourcewise.
