Become a Volunteer in Connecticut!

Thank you for your interest in Nutmeg Senior Rides! Becoming a volunteer in any area will always be a very satisfying activity. Volunteering has a positive impact on the elderly because it increases their perception of security and decreases their sense of isolation. The aging population is a significant challenge for today's societies in Connecticut and throughout the United States. For these reasons, volunteer programs have been developed to alleviate the effects of loneliness among older adults.

 

A volunteer is a person who freely commits him/herself to a sector of the population and helps them with their needs and problems.
