AmeriCorps Seniors taps the skills, talents, and experience of seniors to meet a wide range of community challenges.
JFSA’s AmeriCorps Seniors program offers the opportunity for adults 55 and older to serve in their community in a variety of capacities. Foster Grandparent Program volunteers serve in schools with high-needs students, while Senior Companion volunteers serve in the homes of home-bound adults who need support maintaining their independent lifestyle.
