Volunteer Information


LOWLINC volunteers are passionate about helping older adults in our community. They provide a wide range of services to our members and help with administration. Volunteering is a satisfying activity and you’re bound to make new friends. Many of our members also serve as volunteers.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

As a volunteer, you decide your schedule and interests. Our online Volunteer Self-Signup system allows you to:
  • Volunteer as much or as little as you want, with a minimum of two services per month the expected practice
  • Select the days and hours of the week (no weekends or evenings)
  • Choose the services you want to provide (e.g. transportation, call handler, light maintenance, tech support, friendly visits, errands)

Volunteers undergo a background check and if they want to drive, a DMV check.  They also attend a volunteer training and orientation session.  These sessions cover privacy and confidentiality, communications tips and what you can expect as a volunteer. Attendance at a training session is necessary before you can provide volunteer services.  LOWLINC’s Volunteers Committee provides ongoing training and support. 

Drivers transport members to healthcare and other appointments.  Transports are either within LOW, right outside the gate, or within a 25-mile radius. LOWLINC volunteer drivers have the opportunity to opt-in to a program called Donate it Forward in which they receive monetary credit for their miles driven which they can donate to the charity of their choice.

Volunteer Benefits

While our volunteers report that serving our members is a benefit in itself, LOWLINC volunteers also receive access to our list of approved preferred service providers (e.g., electricians, plumbers, landscapers), and they are welcome to participate with members in social activities and outings.
