City of Burnaby - Recreation: Citizen Support Services

I would like to Volunteer:

Volunteer Visitor

Volunteer Visitors provide a friendly visit once a week to a Burnaby senior, who is isolated or simply would like to make a social connection in person. Volunteer visits are typically 1-2 hours and can be in the senior client’s home or out in the community.

Shopping Buddy

As a volunteer Shopping Buddy you will meet up with a senior client and accompany them in Metrotown or Lougheed Mall on Thursdays, from 10:30am to 1:00pm. All senior clients take HandyDart to and from the malls.

Gadabouts Driver

As a volunteer Gadabouts Driver you will pick up a senior client from their home and bring them to and from a local Burnaby Community/Recreation Centre, where our bus outing will begin and conclude. This takes place once a month on a Thursday (drivers are reimbursed for their mileage).

Lunch Program Driver

As a volunteer Lunch Program Driver you will pick up a senior client from their home and drive them to and from a local Burnaby Community/Recreation Centre. The lunch program runs on Thursdays between 10:30-1:00 pm (drivers are reimbursed for their mileage).

 

Social Event Assistant

As a volunteer Social Event Assistant you will greet, socialize, and assist assigned senior client(s) during social outings/events. This volunteer position is for the Lunch Program and/or the Gadabouts outings, as well as seasonal Citizen Support Services special events.
