Why Volunteer?

Volunteerism is a cornerstone of the Village model, drawing upon the untapped capacity of people in our communities to support each other. Volunteers provide most of the services, resources, and community activities that will allow our Village to offer a safety net and the peace of mind that make a positive difference in the lives of our members.

Some of the benefits of being a volunteer include:

  • Staying active – physically, mentally and socially
  • Connecting with others, and feeling part of community
  • Putting talents, skills and capacities to good use
  • Paying it forward – knowing that someday each of us may need support too!

For more information on volunteering, please contact the Volunteer Team at

All volunteers are required to complete an application, meet with a Volunteer Team representative, pass background and reference checks and attend the necessary training.

Transportation is one of the most requested services. Volunteers who wish to provide rides receive additional training.

River West Village and Villages NW provide comprehensive instruction for our volunteer drivers. An additional application is required.
