Description: Network Friend (Volunteer Role)
Lifetime Networks – Victoria, BC

Lifetime Networks is a non-profit organization that creates opportunities for people with disabilities for friendship and support as they live full lives in the community.

We are looking for a volunteer who is interested in building a friendship with a quiet and fun young woman with autism who lives in Langford. Through Lifetime Networks, we are building a small circle of supportive friends who are committed to hanging out with her several times per month.

Some of the activities she would love to share with a new friend include: going to music bingo, baking and cooking, going bowling, watching happy movies and TV, playing board games and card games, and listening to music, especially boy bands.

She is also looking at incorporating more activity into her routine, so walks and light outdoor activities are also something she would be interested in doing.
