Volunteers and Opportunities

Volunteering is a wonderful way to help your neighbor and contribute to the intergenerational character of Bedford while meeting new people, becoming more integrated into our community, and learning new skills.

We have volunteer opportunities for those who would like to assist elders to remain independently in their homes as well as opportunities for older Bedford residents to use their skills and expertise to help both seniors and children.

For a better look at some COA volunteer activities, see the following photos!
