The Buddy Program

Buddy ProgramThe Buddy Program matches vetted volunteers, age 55 and up, with older adults based on shared interests. The goal of the program is to foster supportive relationships around a hobby or activity allowing both the Buddy and the volunteer to learn, teach and grow.

Are you an older adult that has left behind a beloved hobby such as gardening or fishing as it has become harder to do alone? Let us help you find a volunteer that shares your interest and can help you get the flowers blooming or the fish biting!
