As a Cedar Village volunteer, you can have a real impact on the lives of seniors. Our volunteers help deliver enriching and engaging activities. There’s a saying that whoever saves a life, it is considered as if they saved an entire world. Cedar Village volunteers work to repair the world one life at a time. It can happen in small moments—like taking a resident in a wheelchair outside to enjoy a beautiful day—or leading an activity that helps a dementia patient reconnect with buried memories through music. Whatever your interests, there is likely to be a volunteer opportunity for you at Cedar Village.
As a not-for-profit organization, it’s our volunteer-supported programming that helps set us apart from other retirement communities. Our volunteers also deliver one-on-one attention that helps residents and patients improve quality of life.
Here is how you can become a Cedar Village volunteer. Anyone 12 years or older can apply to become a volunteer at Cedar Village by completing an application.
