and volunteer with a self directed volunteer team
On August 22, 2014, PAFC started its first four Self Directed Volunteer Teams (SDVT). This model of volunteering is integral to the workings of PAFC. By using mostly older adult volunteers who have the time and skills to work as a team to solve specific problems, SDVT are the work horses of PAFC. They also offer volunteers a chance to make a real impact without committing themselves for long periods of time. PAFC plans to continue to utilize this volunteer model for creating change toward promoting Age-Friendly communities in Larimer County. For specific examples of SDVTs, check out the Priority Group pages listed across the bottom of this website.
