Volunteer

Be a Princeton Senior Resource Center Volunteer

As a PSRC volunteer, you help us carry out our mission. You learn new skills and sharpen existing ones, share valuable knowledge and actively contribute to the community. PSRC could not offer such a wide range of programs and services without the involvement of dozens of volunteers who give hundreds of hours to the organization and the community.

If you are interested in participating in one of the following opportunities, please call PSRC at 924-7108. You will be interviewed about your interests, skills and availability. When matched with a position you will be trained and receive ongoing support from one of the PSRC staff.
