Volunteer Opportunities

Why volunteer at the senior center?

Volunteers are the heart and soul of everything we do at the Northampton Senior Center. From the reception desk to the coffee shop, photography class instructors to exercise instructors and bingo callers, volunteers keep the center running.

Research shows that older adults who participate in senior center programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being. Compared with their peers, senior center participants have higher levels of health, social interaction, and life satisfaction. (ncoa.org)

In 2018, over 100 volunteers that would have equated to over $400,000 if having to pay salaries. Are you interested in sharing your time and talent as a part of our volunteer team and enriching the lives of area seniors?
