Question: Dear Government George, I am over 55 and would like to volunteer for my community. What do you suggest?
Answer: Well, there is a Corporation for National & Community Service that helps people find volunteer opportunities. Here is what they have to say about themselves,…” Thank you for making the decision to ‘‘Get Involved!’’ Your volunteer potential has never been stronger, the need has never been greater, and the time to get involved has never been better. Finding the opportunity that best suits your skills, availability, and expectations can make all the difference in your experience. You have the power to leave a lasting legacy through service to others.
The Corporation for National and Community Service, which oversees the Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America programs, is the federal agency charged by Congress with engaging more Americans in volunteer service. We are happy that you have selected us to help you learn more about the many age 55-plus service opportunities in your community. Our “Find a Volunteer Opportunity” search engine, powered by VolunteerMatch, provides you with access to real-time volunteer opportunities tailored to the skills and experience of age 55-plus volunteers. Most of the opportunities are flexible and geographically convenient.” Visit www.getinvolved.gov
