Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Youth 2 Seniors is a youth-based program that creates intergenerational programs designed to partner youth and seniors within the community to enhance each other's lives and learning experience. Programs are designed to: Engage Youth in opportunities to volunteer at an early age and appreciate the senior citizens in our communities. Enhance the lives of senior citizens by providing them with opportunities to share and work with local youth. Bridging Generations by uniting youth with Seniors to partner together and build a two-way relationship.
Y2S is a 100% volunteer organization and all programs are free to the community. Programs are held in assisted living facilities and participants range from ages 5-95 on average.
Y2S provides free art classes, giving programs and holds special events. Each year are we hold approximately 40 art classes, make 500 stuffed animals that are donated to children in need in the community, hold an annual intergenerational event and more!
Our art classes are taught by professional art teachers and always held in assisted living communities. Most classes are open to the community although a few are geared specifically toward older people and children living in children's shelters.
Our giving programs provide opportunities for youth and seniors to give back to the central Texas community. We do this by making stuffed animals for children in need, painting bowls to raise money to feed Austin's hungry and by participating in other giving programs.
Intergenerational is a very fun annual event that combines community awareness, volunteerism and fun all into one day! www.intergenerationalday.org is our dedicated event site for this event.
