Become a Volunteer - Basic Info
We are delighted that you are willing to volunteer. Volunteers can become service providers for our members and choose to help as a driver, to help with friendly check-ins (phone and/or visits), or to do light home repair tasks. We plan to add more service areas in the future.
Volunteering is a wonderful way to contribute to your community. It is not necessary to be a member or be over 50 years old to volunteer. We encourage members to include their younger family members and acquaintances in our volunteering activities.
Residents of areas outside BMAV boundaries may apply to serve BMAV members as volunteer service providers. While neighbors who reside within the BMAV service area will be asked first whether they can fill a member request, we are exceptionally grateful to those outside our area who have offered to help fill these needs when our residents are not available to do so. This is community in the true sense of the word.
You can choose how and when you want to volunteer and always have the right to turn down a request.
Out of respect for our members, in order to become a volunteer service provider you must first be vetted and undergo a background check. This is a simple process for most and the fees are covered.
For those who do not wish to become a service provider at this time, there are many other ways to volunteer with BMAV:
Speak on an area of my expertise
Serve as photographer
Serve as videographer
Arrange a happy hour at a nearby venue
Arrange a coffee or tea nearby
