The Seniors for Kids Society is a unique non-profit organization governed under a board of directors. A program coordinator manages the senior volunteers and students, and works directly with school staff. Necessary materials are provided for matched groups who work within a structured, time-limited, and site-based program.
Senior volunteers act as representatives of the organization. The organization actively seeks the volunteers’ input on programs, policies and procedures and organization concerns. As representatives of the community-at-large, these senior volunteers actively participate at all levels of the organization, ensuring that services are responsive to the needs of the students and members.
Training and supervision is provided to ensure that all senior volunteers understand their roles, responsibilities and limitations and are able to undertake them in an appropriate and safe manner.
