Effective immediately, AGE of Central Texas has put a hold on all group and individual volunteer opportunities due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) concerns until further notice. This is being done in an effort to limit possible exposure to the vulnerable immune systems of those we serve and our staff. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.

A: At AGE, we are dedicated to older adults and those who care for them. Aging touches all of us. As a volunteer, you can share in the journey of aging with aging adults in our programs and the families in our community who are caring for our elderly. We think you’ll find this rewarding and hope you’ll join us!
