Hand in Hand...Linking Lives

HomeVolunteer Info & Sign Up

Welcome to GOT - Growing Older Together

We’re so glad you are interested in becoming a volunteer.

You will find that joining and volunteering are both easy.

What We Do

As an all-volunteer organization, we are committed to ensuring that the work we do is meaningful. Our volunteers make a difference in the lives of our members by providing transportation, handyman services – including installing air conditioners, hanging pictures, moving deck furniture and the like, friendly visits, and computer help.

As volunteers, we are helping our neighbors, seniors in our communities, to remain at home. At the same time, we are creating connections and friendships with the people we help.

Many of our volunteers look eagerly for their friends on the easy online self-sign up. Our members, who come from all walks of life, are anxious to share their stories and are extremely grateful, both for the assistance they receive, and the time they are able to spend with engaging and interested volunteers.

How it Works

As a Growing Older Together volunteer, your schedule is in your hands.

Our Volunteer Self Sign-Up enables you to peruse the open requests and choose the ones that fit best with your schedule. There is no expectation that you will volunteer at a particular time or interval. However, in order to ensure that all member requests are filled, we ask that you commit to provide a minimum of six services per year.

Becoming a Volunteer

 Volunteer Application Form

To become a volunteer:

Complete a volunteer application.

Complete a background screening. GOT partners with Intellicorp, a nationally accredited organization.

**Screening fees average $55 per individual—a significant expenditure for GOT. If you would like to help defray all or part of these costs, you can bring a check to the volunteer training or send one to GOT, 830 Main Street, #574, Honesdale, PA 18431.

Attend a very short volunteer training session.
