The Senior Commission of Wauwatosa would like to communicate more effectively with neighborhood associations in Tosa via a Senior Liaison. The liaison does not need to be a “senior”, just someone who has a passion for helping our senior neighbors make connections with the various resources available to them. You would be the ‘keeper’ of the brochures provided by the Senior Commission. It would be a very simple volunteer position you could list on your resume. Great for a local college student or professional in need of volunteer hours. There is an upcoming training session on January 22nd from 6:30-8:30pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being one of the liaisons for Pabst Park.
Senior Liaison Program Description
The Senior Liaison Program is designed to create an environment of inclusion for all older adults that will encourage them to remain in Wauwatosa as they age. The senior liaisons will connect our older adults to the community: its people, its activities, its resources.
To accomplish this, each neighborhood association is recruiting at least one or two senior liaisons who will reach out to their neighborhoods’ older adults to make that connection. At the Jan. 22 training, they will receive information folders to distribute to seniors at neighborhood and citywide events.
This program will be a partnership between the senior liaisons and the neighborhood association. They will work together to tailor their efforts to the particular needs of the neighborhood’s older adult community. The Senior Commission will oversee this program and be an active partner in its support.
