If you are, the Somerville Council on Aging (SCOA) could be the place for you!
The SCOA offers a rich volunteer program with opportunities to help with programming and services for Somerville’s older adults. Every quarter, the agency hosts a “Volunteer Roundtable” devoted to giving volunteers a forum to share experiences and stories. Current SCOA volunteers mingle with those interested in learning more about the ways they lend their time and skills to building an age-friendly community. Volunteering at the Somerville Council on Aging, explains Volunteer Coordinator Natasha Naim, LCSW, provides something fun to do, while at the same time providing meaningful work.
“These roundtables are a great way for current and potential volunteers to meet each and to learn from each other,” says Naim. “It’s an excellent way to combat isolation and build unity, and to help people find ways to give back to the community where they live.”
The next roundtable, and the first for 2016, is set for Friday, January 22nd at 10:00 a.m. at 167 Holland Street in Somerville. For more information, contact Natasha at (617) 625-6600, ext. 2317.
