Description Lifetime Networks is a non-profit organization that creates opportunities for people with disabilities for friendship and support so that they can live rewarding lives in the community.
We are looking for a volunteer, perhaps a student, who is interested in building a friendship with an amazing man with physical and developmental disabilities. He has a great sense of humour and is fun to spend time with. Through Lifetime Networks, he has a small circle of supportive friends and he wants to add one more person to the group who can visit with him on weeknights at his home.
Some of his interests include getting to know you, grabbing a bite to eat at a pub, going to a live hockey or other sports games and taking in special events in Victoria.
If this volunteer opportunity captures your interest, please contact Jessica at 250 477 4112, extension 306, or volunteer@Lnv.ca.
