Our volunteers tell us that one of the best things about volunteering for Villages Clark County is we recognize that your time, your family and your commitments come first. Your volunteer time is scheduled by you at your convenience. Just two hours a week, or even in a month, allows you to help a senior living nearby. Like to travel? Volunteer with us! Your volunteer time is scheduled around your trips.
We have two kinds of volunteers:
- Service volunteers. These are volunteers who directly assist seniors by helping in their homes, driving them to a doctor’s appointments, running errands or accompanying seniors to events and activities.
- Village support volunteers. Village support volunteers provide assistance with: office support, marketing and publicity, community outreach, becoming a speaker, helping organize and schedule events. Village support volunteers may work on committees and may attend meetings. There are also plenty of opportunities to work out of your home on your computer at your convenience.
