Volunteers

As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child, just as it takes the Antioch community to help care for our senior population. While members and staff members at the Antioch Senior Center (ASC) work together to build a strong network of care and support, we rely on our dedicated volunteers to help maintain the positive and supportive atmosphere we have created.

The ASC works with all kinds of volunteers – from students to senior citizens. Volunteers help to organize outings and activities, or just spend an afternoon hanging out with our members. Whether you have a passion that you’d like to bring to the ASC or a skill that can be used to benefit the lives of our seniors, we’d like to hear from you.

VOLUNTEERING FOR GROUPS, STUDENTS & MORE

SENIOR VOLUNTEERS

volun02

After retiring, seniors may find themselves with considerably more free time. Volunteering can offer the opportunity to explore new career paths or pursue different hobbies or passions. In addition, studies have shown that there are numerous physical and mental benefits of volunteering after retiring.

Whether assisting with outings and activities, participating in weekly community service projects, or getting involved with the Antioch Senior Center, the members have ample opportunities to volunteer to get involved.

PROGRAMS & ACTIVITIES

At the ASC, we offer opportunities to engage, enjoy, express, learn, and grow each day. The ASC offers a blend of activities and outings that enrich the body, mind, and spirit. On a typical day, you will find music activities, light exercise or yoga classes, food and conversation events, games, and current events discussions. Our activities programming is designed to bring together members, families, and volunteers—and turn each day into an opportunity for everyone to have fun after 50!
