Give the gift of your time.
Volunteers are a vital part of the work we do. Each year, volunteers provide Silvera more than 5,800 hours of service to help residents live their best lives. If you’re looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity with older Calgarians, consider sharing your time with Silvera.
Please note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’re still unable to welcome volunteers into our communities. Opportunities are currently limited to outdoors and remote programming.
Volunteers lift our communities
Silvera loves volunteers!
We provide many opportunities for volunteers to learn and contribute in meaningful ways. We offer outdoor, indoor and remote activities. Volunteers help with creative arts, gardening, and spiritual- and faith-based activities. They also take part in physical programming, such as piloting our trishaw bike.
Volunteers help residents to live their best lives. We aim to find great opportunities that support residents and fulfill volunteers.
Please note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’re still unable to welcome volunteers inside our communities. Opportunities are currently limited to remote programming and some outdoor volunteer roles.
A Silvera Care Day is a group volunteer project that is hosted by Silvera at one of our communities.
Once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, we look forward to welcoming your team back. We will be able to coordinate volunteer projects of all sizes. We can accommodate a minimum of six people to a maximum of 50.
Typically, groups who participate in Silvera Care Days are from corporate Calgary. Having said that, we also welcome groups of friends, faith communities, sports teams, high school and university students, community groups (Scouts, Pathfinders, etc.). If you have a group of people who want to volunteer, Silvera will work with you to build the perfect volunteer project.
