Volunteer with Us: HCoA Peer Connector Program!

The HCoA Older Adult Peer Connector Program connects people with information to empower seniors to make informed decisions.  Volunteers provide face-to-face information about community programs and services at various library and community locations throughout greater Hamilton. Volunteers are provided with training on the wide array of programs and services for seniors. Specially designed training modules help volunteers to navigate the system to find information and make referrals to help other seniors!

This is a flexible volunteer opportunity for older adults to get involved and help other seniors in Hamilton! We are currently recruiting volunteers to join us at upcoming volunteer sessions.

For more information about the HCoA Older Adult Peer Connector Program, or to Get Involved, Contact Us!



The HCoA Older Adult Peer Connector Program is a partnership of the Hamilton Council on Aging, Hamilton Public Library, and Information Hamilton,

Generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
