The Sierra 2 Senior Center plans to restart select classes and activities in mid-June with the support of a volunteer program.
The Senior Center seeks a handful of passionate, independent and dedicated volunteers to join the administrative support team, helping with day-today operations, including greeting participants and answering questions, checking in participants for activities, assisting instructors, collecting donations and tidying and organizing communal spaces.
Volunteers and community support have been key to keeping the Senior Center operating over the years, but the need for support is more crucial than ever as Sierra 2 seeks to reopen with fewer staff members and within recommended health and safety guidelines.
Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, have a friendly disposition and be comfortable working independently. Interested volunteers can also become activity leads, hosting weekly or monthly groups or classes based on interests they are passionate about, such as games, gardening, writing or photography.
Anyone with free time and interest in volunteering for the Sierra 2 Center should apply online at sierra2.org/volunteer.
