If you believe that serving seniors and others is a fun and enjoyable way of giving back, you’re likely a perfect candidate for a volunteer role with us. Volunteers are an essential part of the CC Young team.
Meet our staff. Engage with our residents. (They are interesting, energetic, curious and have a lot to offer.) Choose how and when you’d like to participate; we are flexible! You’ll make friends with people you’ll never forget. Giving of yourself will change you.
Join us for the joy and the fun of it! We welcome church, youth and community organizations – or individuals and families who believe as we do: that valuing others, especially seniors, enriches us all.

Q: How will I make a difference if I volunteer?
We recognize each volunteer is unique — there is no one else like you. Your talents and skills, friendship and love are an extension of you. As you share these gifts with residents you will improve their quality of life. The Manager of Volunteer Experiences will work with you to determine what works best for your specific gifts.
Q: How can I volunteer at CC Young?
There are many ways to offer your time and talent here! Fill our our Volunteer Application to get started.
Q: Do I have to be a certain age to volunteer?
All are welcome to volunteer as a group, but you must be at least fifteen (15) years of age to volunteer as an individual. School, church, and community groups are encouraged to volunteer for a variety of activities, or bring your own skills to share.
Q: Is there a program specifically for young people to volunteer?
The Summer Teen Program is a good way for teens to get involved at CC Young. We ask for a minimum of 25 hours to be completed during the summer. The program is very flexible to accommodate for vacations, camps, and summer jobs. These hours fulfill community service hours required for many local schools, organizations, and/or academic credit. The minimum age to volunteer is 15.
