"Im so amazed by Elder Helpers .I've spending an hour of my time for the entire week with a senior and its really great to be with them . I visited one senior who survived the holocaust and his stories haunted me for weeks. This is a great organization to volunteer with and I find the hour spent visiting a senior is often the highlight of my week.
Contact them to be put on their volunteer email list. It's worth it!"
Great organization to volunteer for! During college, I was required to enter a practicum for one of my upper division classes . The objective was to ensure that students see a more humanistic and pragmatic approach towards helping others. The Elder Helpers is a wonderful way of helping others. Obviously, it doesn't work for everyone but you have to experience it to find out. You have to be willing to put your best foot forward, set your pride aside and open to new experiences because my volunteer experience was one that I will never forget, difficult at times but always rewarding. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding my experience. I'm more than willing and happy to share with .
