Rose Garden Cafe Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Irvine Senior Services.  To ensure we are meeting the needs of our senior community, we ask that all volunteers commit to volunteering a minimum of three hours per week for at least six months. The majority of our volunteer opportunities are Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  If you need weekend or evening hours, please see the Fitness Center Attendant and Facility Operations Support opportunities.
