Berkeley is seeking a range of volunteers to help at its two senior centers, aiming to enrich the lives of members and volunteers, too.
Volunteers can do a variety of tasks including teaching, wellness checks, and decorating or they can suggest an idea based on their unique skills.
Volunteers must be 18 years or older and consent to filling out an application and a background check. Training will be provided to volunteers, and they can work when it is convenient for them, city officials said.
Seniors can become a member of a senior center for free. The membership gives seniors access to classes, social opportunities such as field trips and services such as transportation.
The North Berkeley Senior Center is at 1901 Hearst Ave. and is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday and Wednesday through Friday.
The Judge Henry J. Ramsey Jr. South Berkeley Senior Center is located at 2939 Ellis St. and is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
