Volunteer Opportunities for Seniors in our Local Schools

SVSLA has teamed up with the Scotts Valley Unified School District to offer senior citizens volunteer opportunities in our local schools. Your unique skills and interests will be matched with a volunteer position that is meaningful to you. Explore the numerous opportunities available, whether it is to help students in the classroom, work in the library, assist with office work, get involved with sports activities, speak to students about a career in your field of expertise, assist in the computer lab, or other activity of interest to you.

We all know that serving in a rewarding volunteer position definitely makes life more fun. For more information, contact Michelle Stewart, Director of Curriculum with the Scotts Valley Unified School District, at (831) 438-1820, ext. 114, or by email at

Secure your water heater before the next earthquake. To coincide with the Great American Shake Out in October, SVSLA is sponsoring free water heater earthquake inspections to ensure your water heater is securely strapped to the wall. Helping Hands volunteers will inspect your water heater and, if necessary, install or replace your water heater straps at no charge to you. This activity is limited to the first 12 seniors in Scotts Valley to sign up. Call (831) 438-1000 soon to sign up.

Nutrition Essentials for Seniors

Which foods are proven to increase cognitive function? What are the most common vitamin deficiencies in seniors? Can you list the most important supplements for seniors? What are the results of the latest scientific nutritional studies on aging? Are there natural alternatives to prescription drugs?

To shed light on the subject of nutrition for seniors, Scotts Valley Senior Life Association (SVLA) is sponsoring this educational workshop, “Nutrition Essentials for Seniors.” Popular holistic nutritionist, researcher and author, Richard B. Goldberg, PhD, will present the latest scientific research findings and practical information on how specific nutrients can bring about improvements in our health and well-being.

Other research topics that will be presented include:  the 15 most common health concerns for seniors, the healthiest diet for seniors, why magnesium is called the anti-aging miracle, increasing energy and enhancing mood with herbs, anti-aging skin care secrets, and more…

Plus, get your personal questions answered by Richard Goldberg, PhD, in the Q&A session. Bring a friend or two to this fact-filled informational workshop.

A reception will follow the presentation with a smorgasbord of “healthy” snacks and beverages:  coconut water, herbal iced tea, kombucha, sugar-free electrolyte drinks, and natural energy drinks, in addition to natural snacks like fruit and nut trail mix, sprouted pumpkin and sunflower seeds, and natural sugar-free cookies and chocolates. Enjoy this opportunity to sample new health food items you may not be familiar with.

Minimum $2 donation is requested at the door. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Please RSVP to Maxine at (831) 600-8440 by July 30th for best seats.
