Senior Corps connects adults 55+ with the people and organizations that need them most. They become mentors, coaches or companions to people in need. They also contribute their job skills and expertise to community projects and organizations. Conceived during John F. Kennedy’s presidency, Senior Corps currently links more than 500,000 Americans to service opportunities. Their contribution of their skills, knowledge, and experience make a real difference to individuals, nonprofits, and faith-based and other community organizations throughout the United States.

Senior Corps offers several ways to get involved. Volunteers receive guidance and training so they can make a contribution that suits their talents, interests, and availability.

  • The Foster Grandparent Program connects volunteers age 55 and over with children and young people with exceptional needs at schools, childcare centers, Head Starts and other youth-service sites. Volunteers mentor, support, and help some of the most vulnerable children in the United States.
  • The Senior Companion Program brings together volunteers age 55 and over with adults in their community who have difficulty with the simple tasks of day-to-day living. Companions help out on a personal level by assisting with shopping and light chores, interacting with doctors, or just making a friendly visit.
  • RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) connects volunteers age 55 and over with service opportunities in their communities that match their skills and availability. From building houses to immunizing children, from enhancing the capacity of non-profit organizations to improving and protecting the environment, RSVP volunteers put their unique talents to work to make a difference.
