The Volunteer Committe presents a Training Session for new Volunteers to East Rock Creek Village. All adults are welcome to volunteer. The Training is required before a volunteer can fill service requests from Village members or work with members in Village administration. After the 2 hour training, volunteers will complete a background check at the Village's expense.
East Rock Creek Village is a volunteer-managed organization which uses volunteers in many capacitites. Our largest need is for drivers available during the work day to transport members to medical appointments and other engagements. ERCV volunteers also make friendly visits and check in calls to members, complete small tasks around the home such as changing lightbulbs, and assist members with organizing and downsizing. Volunteers with IT skills are needed both to assist members in using technology and in assisting with the ERCV village data platform. Volunteers help organize ERCV social events both large (a yearly fundraiser) and small (monthly lunch outings).
Volunteers set their own schedules though weekday availability is very helpful.
The training will take place at Sunrise of Chevy Chase, 2201 Colston Dr, Silver Spring which is near the intersection of Grubb Rd and East West Highway from 3pm to 5pm on Sunday September 22nd.
