Volunteer Opportunities

Why Volunteer with MAS?

As Missoula's volunteer hub, we offer a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for short-term, long-term and episodic projects that visibly make a difference in our community. We are always looking for enthusiastic, compassionate, and motivated volunteers to deliver meals to homebound members of our community, advocate for residents in long-term care facilities, help us provide superior customer service and share our story with the larger community. Missoula Aging Services is fortunate to offer volunteer opportunities to all ages as well as special opportunities for individuals 55 years of age and older. Senior Corps offers unique volunteer opportunities for individuals looking to put their skills and experience to use in the community. Links on this page will provide information about both Senior Corps volunteer opportunities and opportunities for all ages at Missoula Aging Services.
