Volunteer with us! A small amount of your time can mean the world to an older adult in our community, and we regularly hear from our volunteers that they benefit, too! Ashby Village volunteers enjoy:

  • Being a part of something bigger than themselves,
  • Staying active - physically, mentally and socially, and
  • Connecting with others and feeling part of community

With remote and in-person opportunities, volunteering with Ashby Village offers the flexibility to choose how, when and where you apply your talents, skills and experience. A sample of volunteer opportunities directly supporting members includes:

  • Providing rides
  • Assisting with technology (Mac and PC)
  • Shopping for groceries, delivering meals, and preparing food
  • Making friendly visits and checking in by phone
  • Performing small home repairs
  • Assisting with gardening and plant care

Additional volunteer opportunities are available on program teams and in the Ashby Village office, such as:

  • Planning technology education for members
  • Planning and supporting in-person and online events
  • Providing office administrative support
  • Supporting our marketing and communications (photography, video, social media and/or writing talents)
