VILLAGE in the Village, Inc. (ViV) is open to all Corrales residents. There are two levels of membership:
  • Associate Memberships
  • Full Memberships  

Associate Members are the “backbone” of ViV and may participate in all ViV social events, including Osher classes, weekly coffees, bocce ball, nature walks, concerts, lunches, happy hours, and many other activities.  Associate Members have the option to “pay it forward” within our community by volunteering to provide services and support to Full Members.



Full Members are entitled to access volunteer services and support through a simple phone call or email.  The membership fee provides access to trained and screened volunteers, through a coordinated system of linking members with volunteers.  Our ability to provide volunteer services to Full Members is limited to residents of Corrales.  To schedule services, please call the main ViV phone number 505-274-6206 or send an email to CallManagers@VillageintheVillage.org.
