VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

We’re building a new organization to tackle a growing problem in our community: Social Isolation. And we’re going to need lots of help from volunteers.  Please consider volunteering your time and expertise to help us help.

WellKeepers is an organization run totally by volunteers. We rely on our talented volunteers for everything. As an organization working to develop new ideas and programs, we offer some unique and meaningful volunteer opportunities.  We can use your help and it can give you valuable experience for your resume or a chance to help others while engaging with a group of fun and very positive people…at least we hope we are.  Take a look and see if one of these opportunities interests you!
