Event description

Description

Make a positive difference in the life of others, become a Senior Peer Counselor Volunteer. Expand your skills and knowledge. Volunteer counselors receive FREE special training with the tools to provide confidential support. After completing training, counselors will work one-on-one with participants one hour a week to help them manage loneliness, social isolation, life changes, health concerns, and loss of family and friends. Service is offered in Cantonese, English, Mandarin, Spanish, Tagalog, and to the LGBTQ community.

Our volunteers tell us: “After training, we’re able to make clients happy and satisfied. Thus we are happy too.” “I have a better understanding of the challenges facing elderly. It gives me more perseverance, patience, and compassion.” “I feel enriched knowing that I have been of help to others and I learn from my clients’ life experiences.” “It makes my life more worthwhile.”

Training starts: October 17th, only two days a week, every Tuesday and Wednesday, 9 am – 1 pm, for only 4 weeks and one day.
