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.

Missoula Aging Services is always looking for enthusiastic, compassionate, and motivated volunteers. We have a wide range of volunteer positions for ages 18 and older, as well as Senior Corps positions for ages 55 and older. Senior Corps positions include the RSVP, Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion programs, and are a great fit for anyone interested in putting their skills and experience to use in the Missoula community.

Four MAS Volunteers Recognized with Awards

Throughout Missoula County, hundreds of Missoula Aging Services (MAS) volunteers donate their time and talents to improve the community. MAS is pleased to announce that four dedicated volunteers have been recognized for their tremendous work.

Longtime Foster Grandparent and RSVP Volunteer Neil Weare traveled to Helena this spring where he was honored with the ServeMontana Award from Governor Bullock.  Neil won this award because of his 8.5 years - that’s 11,001 hours of service! - through MAS’ Senior Corps program with Pre-school Head Start, Flagship and MCAT.

“We wouldn’t trade him for anything,” Neil’s supervising teacher at Head Start said. “His enthusiasm for working with the children is wonderful and he is very well loved.”

RSVP Volunteer Julie Devlin won the Montana Food Bank Network’s Treasure State Award for the Most Treasured Volunteer. The Missoula Food Bank and Community Center nominated Julie for her 7 years of service in their food pantry and Kid’s Table program. Incredibly, the day after Julie traveled to Helena to receive this award from First Lady Lisa Bullock, she won the Lyle Heath Award from the Sentinel Kiwanis Club of Missoula as well. 

Fellow Foster Grandparent David Watt has won the Early Childhood Champion Award for his 16,834 hours of service through Missoula Senior Corps at MAS. Dave has helped lots of little ones thrive with Head Start, Flagship, Space Camp, Kinder Cubs & the Ronald McDonald House.

Julie was honored for her time at the Food Bank and for helping with nonprofit fundraisers, low-income housing, veterans, older adults, young mothers, at risk youth, and people with disabilities.  Missoula is fortunate to have such a shining star of a volunteer!

Due to her incredible work with Dementia Friendly Missoula (DFM), another great RSVP volunteer was recognized. Patricia Holkup won the Hospice Care Foundation’s Honoring Our Heroes Award. She’s the Chair of DFM, which provides education and support to adults with Alzheimer’s and related dementias and their caregivers.

MAS is proud to highlight these hardworking and compassionate volunteers. Their commitment to the Missoula County community is inspiring.
