Volunteer Vibes Community Manager

We have created an innovative online space for our volunteers to share stories about their experiences, ask questions to others, sign up for events and training and to be vocal about the things that matter to them and their VIPs (isolated older people).   We are looking for volunteers to help us create and encourage content on this space. From doing mini reviews of places to take VIPs on trips within the city, to writing posts about tips and tricks for doing activities with VIPs.
