Volunteer at On Lok

On Lok serves thousands of seniors, enabling them to live with independence and dignity.

Research has proven that social interaction keeps people healthy. Our volunteers talk to seniors, play games with them, lend an ear if an elder wants someone to talk to, and help out with recreational activities that are designed to be engaging and therapeutic.

Join our rank of over 200 individual volunteers who help out and touch people’s hearts every day at our centers located around the Bay Area.
