Volunteers Are Central and Essential to the Village

Carquinez Village is led by a group of caring and committed volunteers who want to make a positive difference in the lives of older people.  Volunteers (many are also members) deliver individual services to members; plan and execute all events and activities, and provide all organizational and office support. 

Carquinez Village is recruiting volunteers to provide supportive services to its members and to help with the work of the organization. The Village specializes in providing services such as transportation, simple handyman tasks, gardening, and tech help for its senior members in Benicia and Vallejo. Such services help seniors who want to remain living in their homes as they age but need some extra help. Often a friendly phone call makes a big difference to someone who is homebound.

Opportunities to volunteer also include creating and providing social, educational, and cultural programs—all designed to enrich the lives of our members and volunteers. Our committees always need people who have just a few hours a month to devote to membership recruiting, communications, fundraising, virtual office, and other rewarding tasks.

The first step in joining Carquinez Village as a volunteer is to fill out our:  Volunteer Application. After you have submitted the application, we will contact you regarding the next scheduled training.
