Volunteer and Connect With Seniors

Volunteer and Connect with Seniors

So much of what helps GEF Seniors Housing positively influence the quality of life of seniors is driven by our team of volunteers. Currently, volunteer programs range from activities with seniors such as exercise and hosting games to sharing artistic talents with an appreciative audience.


There’s no limit to what can be offered through your volunteer time to the seniors living at the 40 different buildings across Edmonton.

To show appreciation to volunteers, GEF Seniors Housing hosts a special volunteer recognition event and provides reference letters and confirmation of your volunteer hours to fulfill academic, corporate and association based volunteer requirements.

We welcome people who want to share their smiles, ideas, encouragement, enthusiasm, and energy.

GEF Seniors Housing is always looking for new program ideas and welcomes your suggestions on anything that keeps seniors active mentally and physically! Contact us by phone at 780-482-6561, email volunteer@gef.org, or click here to download our volunteer application form.
