Volunteer opportunities at John Knox Village.

Volunteering with John Knox Village means sharing your time, talents, and positivity to uplift the lives of seniors in our entire community.

John Knox Village volunteers find that each volunteer experience enriches their own lives just as much as the lives of the seniors they support. You can choose where and how to volunteer your time to place your strengths where they’re most meaningful.

We offer a wide variety of volunteer opportunities — from companionship visits and sharing talents, to assisting with special events, activities and transporting residents in wheelchairs — throughout all of our levels of care. We also have veteran volunteer opportunities specifically designed to support veterans in our community.
