SCNA welcomes volunteers! Please call 452-3005 to volunteer for any of the events SCNA hosts. If you live within the SCNA boundaries, there are a number of ongoing volunteer opportunities you can enjoy.
Our Most Critical Need: Senior Center Support Volunteers
We cannot re-open the Senior Center without volunteers!
The Sierra 2 Senior Center has always been a program by and for the community! As we reopen the Senior Center with limited activities, volunteer support will be the heart and backbone of the Senior Center. Volunteers will ensure successful daily operations and activities and to help us maintain the positive and supportive atmosphere we have fostered over the years. There are two ways to volunteer:
- become part of the small admin support team, responsible for day-to-day operations or
- volunteer your time as an activity lead, where you host a group or class in a subject, hobby or interest you are passionate about.
Opportunities range from ongoing weekly shifts to monthly commitments.
Become a Board Member
Board members are made up of neighborhood volunteers. There are wide arrays of activities that you can participate in as a Board member. You can help with fundraising events such as the annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction or Home Tour, write articles for the Viewpoint and participate in Advocacy work on behalf of the neighborhood. To find out how to become a board member by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Become a Viewpoint Distributor
The Viewpoint is the free neighborhood newspaper of the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association, published since 1979. Our 10 monthly issues each year are written and delivered by neighborhood residents. To become a volunteer Viewpoint distributor, please call Gerre at 451-9610.

Volunteers Needed for Filming
The My Story Project at the Sierra 2 Senior Center films the life stories from older adults and produces a DVD to share with their family and friends. The presentations are organized with the help of a “story coach” who works with the star of the video. Other volunteers operate the camera equipment, set up lights and backgrounds, and finally edit the video with photos integrated into the DVD. Additional volunteers are sought to help with this project, especially those with MAC computer experience. Please contact the Senior Center at 455-6339 for more information.
Become an Intern
Interns can learn about all facets of running a non-profit community center from marketing, event planning, and facilities management to grant writing, finances, and advocacy. Commitments are flexible and customizable. Arrangements for school credit is possible. Contact email@example.com or use the form below.
Volunteer at Events
SCNA hosts over 10 events a year both at the Sierra 2 Center and Curtis Park. There is always a need for volunteers for groups and individuals of all kinds.
