Volunteer

TSCOR is comprised almost entirely of volunteers who work together to create our programs and services. Take a look at our volunteer opportunities and see what interests you.

Driver
Volunteer drivers provide free, roundtrip rides for clients to medical appointments and grocery stores.
Clients are seniors 60 and older. They are mobile and may have canes or walkers, but don’t use wheelchairs. They live independently, but for various reasons they no longer drive.
Driving is easy to do and easy to fit into your schedule; choose who, when and where you drive using our online scheduling system. Pick up a client from their home, drive them to their appointment, stay nearby until they are ready and then drive them home again. Providing this service is enjoyable for drivers and clients – you’re guaranteed to learn something new about your passenger and friendships are often forged. Take a virtual drive and see what it’s all about.
Concerned about driving during the pandemic? Read our safety protocols.

Instructor

Teachers provide instruction for 1 hour classes, Lunch Speakers give 45 minute presentations with a short Q&A. Select a topic of your choosing. Complete this Call for Instructors form to get started.
