You’ll forge new relationships with people in your community and make a significant difference in the lives of others. Senior Corps service also provides tangible benefits for volunteers. The Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion programs offer modest stipends and other ways to help offset the costs of volunteering. Other benefits include training and insurance.
Absolutely! Senior Corps volunteers often tap their wealth of experience and wisdom and channel it in new directions. For example, some volunteers learn how to be effective tutors to young children; some organize community watch programs or environmental protection projects; others help nonprofit organization boards with planning or resource development. Your host agency will provide the training you need to be effective.
Senior Corps volunteers work closely with their local project director, who gathers specific information about how potential volunteers would like to serve. After you find the program that interests you most, you will help to shape your placement and assignments.
Senior Corps volunteers with RSVP, the Foster Grandparent program, or the Senior Companion program should speak directly to their project supervisor. If further assistance is required, contact your Corporation State Office.
