Seniors Mentoring Seniors

Print PDF

The Seniors Mentor program is offered in conjunction with the Safer Seniors U programs. It is a community-based program that is operated and managed by Cowichan Community Policing. It addresses the safety concerns of seniors by:

- promoting awareness about home and personal safety, road safety, frauds and scams, financial awareness and internet and cybercrimes

- enhances communication between seniors and the police

- provides information, educational sessions and referral services to seniors

We are reaching out to seniors who are interested in providing crime prevention and educational information to other seniors. Whether one on one over a cup of tea, in a person's home or at the Community Policing Offices, small group settings, at a table top display at a community event or even a larger group presentation.

 

Volunteer time is flexible and requires a commitment to learn about and keep updated on at least one crime prevention topic and make a minimum of two presentations per year - approx. 10 hours total. A little time can make a BIG difference in keeping our seniors safe.

If you are a senior who: Enjoys public speaking, have the ability to work independently, are able to commit to a trainers workshop (7 hours) - November 14th, have 10 hours per year to volunteers to coach and present to seniors and seniors agencies, an interest in keeping seniors safe in our communities.
