Give Back, Seniors. Volunteer.
verybody can benefitfrom doing volunteer work butespecially seniors. From makingnew friends to making a differ-ence in someone’s life, volun-teering is a rewarding way tospend free time productively.Seniors have a full lifetime of experiences to share. As former entrepreneurs, sales representa-tives, artists, farmers, nurses,teachers, and trades profession-als, to name a few of their vastlivelihoods, to hobbyists likefishermen, gardeners, knitters,mechanics, wood workers, thewealth of knowledge that theycan contribute to their localcommunities is practically end-less.Here are ten great reasons whythe senior in your care should become a volunteer. These aretaken from Senior Corps, part of the Corporation for National andCommunity Service (CNCS), afederal agency that connectsAmerican citizens of all demo-graphic categories to give themthe opportunity to improve their communities.
• Volunteers are essentialto the United States.
Our country needs volunteers to con-tinue thriving –especially intimes of financial crisis. In 2009the American Recovery andReinvestment Act mobilizedmore than 135,000 volunteerswho helped more than a million people.
• American industry needsseniors now more thanever.
Communities need activeseniors. While all volunteersmake a difference, experienced,knowledgeable seniors make aneven bigger difference by savingorganizations money that can be put to better use in other ways.The Senior Corps programRSVE (Retired and Senior Vol-unteer Program) is the nation’slargest senior volunteer net-work. More than 72,000 differ-ent organizations use RSVP tofind volunteers, so all retiredseniors can easily find an oppor-tunity that works for them.
• Senior volunteers helpbridge the generation gap.
The cultural differences betweenseniors and young people arehuge! Differences like technol-ogy, workplace behavior andeven political differences createa great divide. But when seniorsand young people get the chanceto work together and collabo-rate, there is reciprocal learningfor all involved and results in a better understanding of eachother.Continues on next page
