Learn About Senior Corps
The National Senior Service Corps is proud of the more than half a million volunteers ages 55 and older who put their experience and talents to work getting things done in their communities. Senior Corps has a thirty-year history of leadership in senior volunteer service and is comprised of a network of projects all over the country. The three programs within the Senior Corps are the Foster Grandparents, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), and Senior Companions.
Foster Grandparents links senior volunteers to children who need their help. The Senior Companion Program places its volunteers with adults needing extra assistance to live in the community, such as frail older persons. RSVP is "one-stop shopping" for senior volunteers where the service opportunities are endless.
Although these programs are not administered through the Michigan Community Service Commission (MCSC), you can learn more about Senior Corps opportunities in Michigan by contacting (313) 226-3024 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
