Volunteer with the Elderly


Intercultural Friendship is a bi-weekly (every other week) volunteer opportunity to enjoy conversation and play card and board games with elderly residents of the Golden Oaks Village (southwest side of Stillwater) on Sundays from 12:30-2:30pm. This opportunity is especially geared toward international students wanting to practice their English and to get to know more about American culture and people; however, American students are also welcome and certainly needed to help facilitate transportation for international students and conversation with the residents.

Expected qualities of student volunteers:

  • outgoing
  • speak clearly, loudly
  • good listener
  • friendly
  • respectful
  • punctual
  • high commitment
  • open-minded
  • mindful

Please fill out the form below. You will be contacted by an OSU Wesley staffperson and briefly interviewed in-person before we confirm your participation in this program. The program will begin on Sunday, August 30th.
