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!
Q: Are there volunteer opportunities right now?
Q: When will regular programming return?

Q: What supplies will I need for virtual and outdoor volunteer opportunities?
A: For virtual activities, volunteers will need access to Wi-Fi and technology tools such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone that has recording capabilities. For outdoor beautification, volunteers are required to bring their own gardening supplies including gloves, rakes, hand trowels, etc. Volunteers will also be required to bring their own protective gear including a face mask, gloves, and water. Please note: Individuals will not be permitted to enter the AGE buildings while volunteering which means volunteers will not have access to the restroom while completing their project.
