Volunteer Opportunities

Can we help spread the word about a volunteer opportunity in your organization? Send information by the 10th of the month for publication in the e-Bulletin for the next month to info@vital-aging-network.org. While we will make every effort to include what you send us, space is limited.

FamilyMeans Caregiver Support Program

Male Volunteers Needed

The FamilyMeans Caregiver Support Program is in need of male volunteers to  spend time with another male senior being cared for by a loved one. The  volunteer would be asked to volunteer 2-4 times a month for 2-4 hours.  The volunteer would be providing companionship and supervision, so that  the caregiver could get a break. The volunteer would not be providing  any medical or daily living cares. Volunteers chat, play cards, go for a  walk, watch a movie, talk about sports, cars, former roles, fishing,  music you name it. Females are also needed. If you can help, please contact Dianne Vierling,  FamilyMeans Volunteer Coordinator at dvierling@familymeans.org or call 651-789-4055.

 

Minnesota Reading Corps and Math Corps

Reading and Math Tutors
Minnesota Reading Corps--the nation's largest state AmeriCorps program--and Minnesota Math Corps train tutors to impact students in schools across Minnesota. We are looking to place over 1,000 literacy tutors and math tutors in schools across Minnesota to commit a year of service and change the world of struggling students.

As a tutor, you will implement research-based strategies to help children believe in themselves and succeed in reading by the end of third grade, or in math by the end of eighth grade. You will receive training, a living allowance (about $484 biweekly for full-time), an education award of up to $5,645 and the reward of making a real impact in your community. Tutors who are 55 or older may choose to transfer their education award to a child, grandchild or foster child.

Give a year of service to grow our communities. Apply today to become a tutor! Go to www.MinnesotaReadingCorps.org or www.MinnesotaMathCorps.org. Strong preference is given to tutors who can start serving August 10, 2014. Send questions to recruitment@servemnaction.org.
