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.
Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors, and friends to children with exceptional needs. The program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities.
Volunteers serve at thousands of local organizations that:
Senior Corps connects today’s 55+ with the people and organizations that need them most. We help them become mentors, coaches or companions to people in need, or contribute their job skills and expertise to community projects and organizations. Volunteers receive guidance and training so they can make a contribution that suits their talents, interests, and availability.
Make Independence a Reality
Senior Companions are volunteers age 55 and over who make a difference by providing assistance and friendship to adults who have difficulty with daily living tasks, such as shopping or paying bills. We help these adults remain independent in their homes instead of having to move to more costly institutional care.
