Volunteers serving with AmeriCorps Seniors, formerly known as Senior Corps, make a difference in their communities. For decades, volunteers age 55+ have been serving with the Foster Grandparent, Senior Companion, and RSVP programs. Each year, these AmeriCorps Seniors programs engage more than 200,000 older adults in volunteer service, enriching the lives of the volunteers and benefiting their communities.

AmeriCorps, the federal agency that sponsors service, volunteering, and civic engagement provides funding and support for AmeriCorps Seniors programming.
