Interested in getting to know the seniors in our community?
Come volunteer at Sunrise in Wayland and Whitney Place in Natick!

Volunteers will be playing board games, reading, painting, etc. with the residents at Sunrise in Wayland and Whitney Place in Natick. The level of mental capability varies between these residents, as some of these residents do have Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Doing these activities is a great way to keep these seniors mentally active and can have a positive effect on those suffering from mental illnesses.

Contact Aaditi Narayanan at if you have any questions.

Teen Tech Tutors

Are you good at explaining things, and patient as your "student" learns? Why not use that skill for community service? Be a Teen Tech Tutor and get paired with an older Wayland resident one-on-one for up to three one-hour sessions to answer their questions about how to use their device. Meet at the library on a schedule you choose. You won't believe how grateful your students will be for your help and attention. To sign up, contact Ann Gordon at the Wayland Council on Aging,

Greetings Students!

One Earth Collaborative is a program of Open Spirit – A Place of Hope, Health, and Harmony, and seeks to foster community through our shared connection to the Earth.

One Earth Collaborative is dedicated to transforming our consciousness and our culture by acknowledging and strengthening our spiritual connection to the Universe and all it contains and allowing that connection to move us to action and to meaningful changes in our lives and in our communities.

One Earth Collaborative achieves its goals through:

1) connecting people through conscious conversations, shared celebrations, interfaith learning, and advocacy for the Earth and its inhabitants;

2) nurturing our spiritual connection to the Earth and each other through outdoor exploration and interaction, for ourselves and our children, storytelling, and deep listening to strengthen us individually and communally; and

3) working together and sharing wisdom to help us learn to live more sustainably as individuals and as communities.

What we need:

One Earth Collaborative seeks assistance with online publicity and social media development. Being comfortable with writing and an interest in the outdoors are helpful. This work can be done at home and at the home of Rabbi Katy Allen, the facilitator of One Earth, who lives within walking distance of the high school.

For more information, please contact Katy Allen at  or 508-358-5996.
