Establishing and operating a Village requires the work of many dedicated people with all types of experience and skills. Whether you have a lot of time to give, or only a little, we can find a role that fits your schedule and interests. There are ample opportunities for fun and rewarding involvement.
Would you like to provide direct assistance to our Village members? You might volunteer to do one, or several, of the following: friendly visiting; driving members to appointments; helping with shopping, errands, pet care, computers or gadgets; or doing minor home repairs and small tasks that require climbing or lifting.
Or would you like to help Village staff with planning and organizational work? You might, for example, answer the Village phone, help recruit members and volunteers, plan educational programs and/or social events, or help with fundraising and development.

Recruiting capable and enthusiastic volunteers and matching them with our members is essential to the success of our Village. We strive to provide effective and “neighborly” services for members as well as positive and rewarding experiences for our volunteers. Meeting these twin goals will produce the added benefits of new friendships and a stronger community.
Volunteer service for Silver Spring Village should be rewarding and should not become a burden. Volunteers may serve on a regular or periodic basis. Volunteers are free to accept or decline particular assignments, depending on their preferences, schedules, and commitments. If a volunteer task is not right for you, “just say no.” We’ll thank you and turn to another volunteer for help.
