Senior Corps helps communities in the form of senior volunteers over the age of 55. They have many different programs that seniors can participate in to perform some kind of volunteering service to their surrounding communities. They only offer volunteer positions to the public in which the person can find challenging, rewarding and fun activities. They do not offer paid positions at the moment. Some of the great programs that Senior Corps offers are the Foster Grandparent Program that allows volunteers age 55 and older to help children and young people as well those with exceptional needs.
They also offer a Senior Companion Program that can help bring people over the age of 55 and older together. The people are mostly adults who live around them who have problems performing everyday tasks. Another great service that is offered is the RSVP program. It for anyone over the age of 55 who is looking for the best volunteering opportunities. They are required to register with Senior Corps to be eligible for the opportunities.
