When you volunteer, you're not just helping others - you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
Foster Grandparent Program
If you're 55 and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Foster Grandparent. It's that simple.
Foster Grandparents serve up to 40 hours per week. Some volunteers may qualify to earn a tax-free hourly stipend. In addition, with Foster Grandparents, you'll receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where you serve, and supplemental accident and liability insurance while on duty.
Foster Grandparents provide guidance to children in Head Start centers
and other youth facilities.

You've gained a lifetime of experience. Now is the time to put your skills and talents to good use by volunteering through RSVP.
RSVP is America's largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over. RSVP Volunteers tackle tough issues in their communities. With RSVP, you choose how and where you want to serve. You choose the amount of time you want to give. And you choose whether you want to draw on your skills or develop new ones.
RSVP and other community volunteers build a wheelchair ramp.
RSVP volunteers help at the Senior Nutrition site.
