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 our fellow community members’ lives 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 monthly. The calls may range from a few minutes to longer, depending if the senior is open to friendly conversation with you or prefers to keep the wellness calls brief as just a check-in call.
- Log in time spent on calls by submitting an easy online Microsoft Form
- Provide updates to Volunteer Coordinator

We ask for California residents as Volunteers due to our background check process, fully paid for by Sourcewise. Unfortunately, we are unable to include volunteers from other states due to being unable to perform an out-of-state background check.
