We Love Our Volunteers

Why Volunteer:

At LINKages Society, volunteers are valued members.  Whether they are youth, older adults, or in-between, volunteers contribute to community change.  Their involvement helps work towards the goal of creating strong and vibrant communities where youth and seniors can thrive.

Volunteering at LINKages will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Build bridges between generations
  • Foster and celebrate age-friendly communities
  • Meet new people, make new friends and develop professional contacts
  • Share skills and experiences with others
 

To be a volunteer in our Community and School Programs, you must be 18 years old, unless otherwise stated.

A Conversation with

BVC Cares

 
Q| Why did you choose to volunteer?

“I wanted to get more involved with the community and I like to make new friends and socialize.”

“I like to help people as much as I can and volunteering is one of the best way to give back to society. Moreover, helping others gives you a good feeling.”

“I volunteer because it helps me get involved in my community. I like to use every opportunity that I find to help others. I always see seniors as my grandparents or as me in the future. Senior people have a lot to teach when you are around them. They might be seniors but they have the energy and enthusiasm of young people. I love that.” 

“Most important is that we have fun!”

Thank you to our amazing volunteers with BVC Cares for your energy, time, and kindness as you choose to connect with seniors in your community!  You are appreciated!
