Senior Corps connects today’s 55-and-older volunteers 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.
