HomeEdgewood Volunteer


Welcome volunteers! We are glad you are here! We believe that volunteering brings meaningful connection, and volunteers are the key ingredient of a successful village.

Edgewood Village of The Village Common of RI provides important structures to support members and volunteers.


Volunteers are:

  • given an orientation, training, back-up and problem-solving support
  • vetted through a secure national online service
  • insured through The Village Common of RI

They are also required to respect member privacy and to sign a confidentiality agreement. The mission and values of our organization must always be upheld.

Edgewood Village offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers are encouraged to consider their interests, passions, skills, and available time in choosing a volunteer role. Volunteering can help us stretch in new ways.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Committee work: Sit on committees that plan events, develop recruitment activities, and advance organizational goals. In addition to our leadership group, we have divided our work into four committees: Volunteer Services. Events & Activities, Recruitment & Inclusion, and Communications.

Technology help: Assist members with learning and navigating technology to supplement existing support.

Membership Ambassadors: Meet with community members to assist in completing an application for membership, which includes identifying services the member may need and/or the member’s volunteer interests.

Volunteer drivers: Supplement existing ride services by providing rides for members to any destination within a reasonable radius of Edgewood. Drive based on the days and times you prefer.

Home task volunteers: Assist with tasks around the home that have become challenging for members.

Village friends: Make check-in calls or visits to individuals who might otherwise be isolated.

Yard and Property Work: Help members with beginning- and end-of- season garden chores and related tasks. Put out and retrieve garbage and recycle bins on a weekly basis.

Office Services: Provide organizational help with village documents, including data entry, writing of thank you notes, and digital maintenance of files related to Edgewood Village.
