Volunteer with the COA
The Wellesley Council on Aging (COA) provides opportunities for individuals of all ages to volunteer. By assisting with our comprehensive programs and services, our volunteers inspire a spirit of community across the generations in our town. Volunteers are essential to our day-to-day functioning, and the success of our organization is due largely in part to the contributions made by our volunteers. A few of our ongoing volunteer opportunities are listed below.
Due to the pandemic, our Lunch and Volunteer Driver programs are on hold at this time.
Teachers & Activity Leaders
The Wellesley Council on Aging is always looking to expand the social, recreational, and educational programs that we offer. We can do this by utilizing the many varied talents of volunteers. Can you teach a language class, give a presentation on an interesting topic that would appeal to seniors, or teach seniors how to make jewelry? These are just some examples, and the possibilities are endless! Tell us what your talents are and how you would like to share them with Wellesley seniors! Currently, all presentations are done via Video Conference Call.
We are always seeking musician(s) to perform on a volunteer basis at social events. Our community loves to hear all types of music--instrumental or vocal, classical or jazz . . . give us a call! Currently, all presenters are done via Video Conference Calls.

Please note that the Council on Aging is required by law to conduct a CORI (Criminal Offense Record Inquiry) check on volunteers and employees over the age of 18, pursuant to M.G.L. c. 6, s 172C, which requires an agency conduct a CORI check on volunteers and prospective employees who have particular duties and responsibilities relative to the elderly and /or disabled under specific conditions set forth in the law. As part of this requirement, the Council on Aging requests a copy of a prospective volunteer’s photo ID.
