Life Enrichment Volunteers work with seniors, age 55 and older to help them connect with the things that bring them joy! As a volunteer with the Jewish Family Service of St. Paul, you can share your passions and life experiences to support and joy to our clients' lives! Our current needs include individuals who can help clients in these ways:
Support a Senior
Support a senior in our program through providing transportation to their essential events and appointments; making a phone call once or twice each week to offer socialization, a friendly voice, and listening ear, helping with projects in their homes, and offering companionship and an opportunity to venture out into the community. We want to utilize your interests and strengths to help our seniors live their best, most engaged lives. ** Russian and Somali-speaking volunteers are especially needed!**
Here are some of our current opportunities to work with our elder clients:
- Chess Companion
- Walking and Socializing Partner
- Business Mentor
- Spanish Language Conversationalist and Companion
- Library Shadow Volunteer/Companion
- Guitar Player to Entertain Clients
- Computer Tutor
- Driver to Medical Appointments and Shopping
We also have many more opportunities available to do one-time volunteering with clients or in the office! You will gain as much as you contribute!
