Senior Clubs & Drop-In

Volunteer Instructors


Do you have a unique skill or knowledge of a subject and are looking for a great way to give back to the senior community? Help share that knowledge by volunteering to present your life experiences, skills, and interests with seniors.

Volunteer instructors share their computer skills, health and wellness and creative knowledge to enrich the lives of adults 55 and older. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Jenn Amerman via email.
