Providing Independent Living Support: Training for Senior Corps Volunteers

Providing Independent Living Support: Training for Senior Corps Volunteers was developed to provide a standardized and easy-to-use training curriculum for Senior Corps’ Senior Companion and RSVP project directors who have volunteers delivering independent living services to seniors, to enhance the services delivered by the volunteers. The curriculum meets the need for creative and practical strategies and ideas that volunteers delivering independent living services can adapt when serving their own clients.

Providing Independent Living Support: Training for Senior Corps Volunteers consists of the curriculum (eight workshop modules) and accompanying Facilitator’s Guide. The Facilitator’s Guide is designed to support the facilitation of the workshop modules in the curriculum. You are encouraged to use both documents when preparing for and conducting the workshop modules. In addition, planning is crucial to successfully training volunteers; we encourage you to create a volunteer training plan and have developed a volunteer training plan process to help you do so.

Curriculum
Each of the eight workshop modules is organized as a 60-75 minute session. These workshops can be conducted individually or in combination of two or more. The module topics are presented as follows but do not need to be implemented in this order:
