HomeOur Volunteer Programs


Newton at Home has more than 100 trained volunteers who provide the vast majority of our member services, share their skills on a variety of NAH committees and work in our office. They are the backbone of our organization.

Our volunteers come in all ages and all stages of life from school children to seniors, recent retirees to full- time employees. There are volunteer opportunities for anyone who wants to make good use of their skills, do something that speaks to their interests, and become part of a wonderful community of neighbors helping neighbors committed to improving the quality of life for Newton seniors. Our Specific Volunteer Opportunities page lists those volunteer positions we are in most critical need of today.

All NAH volunteers are fully vetted and attend an NAH training program.
