Volunteer opportunity description
How would you like to really make someone's day? Be a friendly visitor. Many patients are lonely and have no one to visit them. Help brighten the day of a nursing home patient by chatting and listening to them, reading and playing games with them.
Guess what! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and over in all 5 boroughs! After participating in a thorough interview with an RSVP representative, you will be placed in one of our 600 community-based partner organizations. These organizations include non-profit agencies, schools, hospitals, and cultural institutions located throughout the 5 boroughs of New York City. We pride ourselves on finding the right volunteer opportunity to fit your skills and interests.
Friendly Visiting to homebound seniors in all neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
You Must be 55 Years or Older to Volunteer with the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program.
