Nanaimo Age Friendly Community Society asking for volunteers to help in a number of roles

The Nanaimo Age Friendly Community Society aims to reduce barriers that keep seniors from leading fulfilling lives, and could use some help.

The society is asking for volunteers to help in a number of roles, including steering committee secretary and people who can help with social media engagement and website maintenance.

According to a press release from Volunteer Nanaimo, the Nanaimo Age Friendly Community Society recently launched a website meant to be an information hub for seniors, and the group is now looking for someone who can update the site and recommend improvements. The society is asking for someone who would be able to volunteer 10-15 hours per month.

The group also has a Facebook page “to assist seniors with what’s on and available,” and is asking for a volunteer who can spend 10-15 hours per month updating and moderating the page.

The society is looking, as well, for someone to join its steering committee as secretary. The volunteer would need to be able to organize meeting rooms and Zoom meetings, document meetings accurately and maintain Google docs and meeting agendas and minutes.

For more information about volunteering with the society, e-mail AgeFriendlyNanaimo@gmail.com.
