Volunteer


Welcome volunteers! We are glad you are here! We believe that volunteering brings meaningful connection, and volunteers are the key ingredient of a successful village.


The Edgewood Village of the Village Common of RI provides important structures to support members and volunteers.

 

Volunteers are:

  • given an orientation, training, back-up and problem-solving support
  • vetted through a secure national online service
  • insured through The Village Common


They are also required to respect member privacy and to sign a confidentiality agreement. The mission and values of our organization must always be upheld.


The Edgewood Village offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers are encouraged to consider their interests, passions, skills, and available time in choosing a volunteer role. Volunteering can help us stretch in new ways.

Volunteer Opportunities:


Technology help: Assist members with learning and navigating technology to supplement existing supports.

Member Ambassadors: Meet with community members to assist in completing an application for membership, which includes identifying services the member may need and/or the member’s volunteer interests.


Volunteer drivers: Supplement existing ride services by providing rides for members to any destination within a reasonable radius of Edgewood. Drive based on the days and times you prefer.


Home task volunteers: Assist with tasks around the home that have become challenging for members.


Village friends: Make check-in calls or visits to individuals who might otherwise be isolated.


Communications: Assist with updates to our website and write articles for newsletters.


Events: Identify member interests and develop and facilitate participation in social activities and events.


Resource navigators: Respond to member calls and inquiries. Utilize and update resource information. Communicate requests to Village Common Service Coordinators.
