you are age 55 or above, you can be a part of the Senior Corps national service
program and help to meet a wide range of community challenges. Senior Corps taps
the skills, talents, and experience of more than 500,000 individuals each year through
RSVP volunteers provide the broadest range of community service. They might
conduct safety patrols for local police departments, participate in environmental
projects, provide intensive educational services to children and adults, and respond
to natural disasters, among other activities.
Foster Grandparents serve one-on-one as tutors and mentors to young people
with special needs.
Senior Companions help homebound seniors and other adults maintain independence
in their own homes.
All Senior Corps members receive training for their position, and certain individuals
may qualify for a small stipend to help cover their expenses. If you’d like to find
