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

Free Water Heater Earthquake Inspections

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.
