About Volunteering

When you choose to donate your time and talents as a North Shore Senior Center volunteer, you are taking part in a tradition that dates back to our founding in 1956. Whether behind the scenes, interacting with members and guests, or out in the community, volunteers play a pivotal role in our operations and success.

Why Volunteer With Us?
As a volunteer, you support our mission of fostering the independence and well-being of older adults. You can help create a welcoming place for seniors to gather, socialize and participate in our Lifelong Learning programs and clubs. You can also assist our Senior & Family Services staff as they work with older adults and their families. Or, you can dedicate your time to benefit our House of Welcome Adult Day Services for people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of memory loss. Virtual volunteer opportunities are also an option.

We can match your talents, experience, and schedule to a volunteer role that brings you – and those you help – great satisfaction. We offer regular, flexible and one-time volunteer opportunities in our Northfield and Niles locations as well as out in the communities we serve. We can also work with groups to design meaningful volunteer experiences.
