An integral piece of Village of the Coastside is volunteerism.

First, our Mission is accomplished totally by volunteers.  Whatever your interests, skill set, or expertise, there is a place for on one of our Teams. Learn about our Teams and contact the Team chair to get more information on how you can get involved. See Contact Info

We also have a diverse group of skilled Service Volunteers who give their time and energy to help our Member Plus members. Our Service Volunteers are available to fulfill many services before referrals are made to paid service providers.

You don't need to be a member to be a Service Volunteer with Village of the Coastside. Service Volunteers may include Village members, their children, college students, empty nesters, retirees, and many others from our community.

There are no minimum time requirements. We conduct a basic orientation for all of our volunteers and provide any necessary specialized training. Service Volunteers will receive our Volunteer Handbook.

In order for Village of the Coastside to maintain a safe and comfortable environment, Service Volunteers who will drive or enter a member's home must pass a background check which the Village will pay for, as well as a DMV check for drivers.
