Volunteer Services

Volunteers enrich the lives of residents through providing companionship and assisting with recreational activities. Volunteers give back to their community while gaining valuable experience and the satisfaction of helping others.

Volunteers positions are assigned based on the volunteer's interests and abilities. Do you enjoy singing? Playing an instrument? Reading? Writing? Discussing current events? Playing games? Our volunteers do all of those things and more!

For more information on volunteer opportunities, please contact Tammy Chen, Director of Recreation, at 617.237.3626 or tammy.chen@southcovemanor.org
