Back to top

Volunteers are key to the success and sustainability of so many organizations and missions in our region. 
As a volunteer, you will meet others and build relationships in our communities on the lower Kennebec, share your skills and your time, and make a difference in a neighbor’s life.

Volunteer Opportunities in Our Region

Volunteer Transportation Network  VTN

Come join us! This program in partnership with People Plus and the Bath PD provides free rides for residents who cannot drive themselves to medical appointments, to the pharmacy, grocery shopping, or the food pantry. Since early 2021 up to fourteen volunteer drivers have provided essential rides to residents in our communities, driving a total of 5816 miles. We currently have four active drivers and we would love to welcome you in our team. Contact us for more information or sign up as a volunteer driver at People Plus.                                 



Volunteer ME Mid Coast Maine

A stronger Maine through volunteerism



SEARCH helps seniors who live alone feel less isolated & lonely and more connected to a caring community, while also remaining independent in their own homes. If you have 3-4 hours a week to give, we would love to talk to you about becoming a volunteer with us and be matched with an older person from your community!


Bath Area Family YMCA

Volunteers participate in every aspect of association from developing policy and programs to coaching teams, timing swim meets, assisting with child care, facilities maintenance, landscaping, and helping with special events.


Friends of the Patten Free Library

Anyone can be a friend and help promote resources and services of the library, sponsor programs of general interest, and generate financial support for the library, for example by helping with the annual book sale.


The book sales need folks to unpack and organize books, repack books at the end of the sale, be available to help customers, and keep things orderly during the sale.
