Volunteer Opportunities

Have you always wanted to volunteer or teach others? Well, here is your chance! Northville Senior Services is looking to expand their programs but need your help! The following Social Groups are being formed and need a volunteer to organize the groups.

What's in our bag? - This volunteer would be able to assist others in various crafts, knitting/crocheting, etc. or just have a love for crafts and want to organize a group full of other craft lovers. They meet once per month to enjoy crafting and socializing.

Northville Seniors Lunch Crew - Do you love to eat, try new restaurants and meet new people? Volunteer to organize this group once a month by choosing a place to eat and calling the restaurant for reservations.

Busy Hands, Warm Hearts - Volunteer to lead this group in making items for newborns, vets, dresses for Africa or any other charity the group wished to help.

Woodworking - If you have skills in woodworking and want to share your ideas or just get together with others who share your love for woodworking, volunteer to lead this group

Beginner Card & Game Leaders - Our staff is always asked if there is someone that can teach them the card & board games that we offer. If you are skilled in one of the following games and are patient with those that are just starting out, please come see us and set up a date to teach others how to play! We need Euchre, Pinochle & Mah Jongg.
