ALLIANCE

RETIRED

The Alliance for Retired Americans is a
nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of
retired trade union members affiliated
with the AFL-CIO.

Its predecessor organization was known
as the National Council of Senior
Citizens.

WHAT
IS
SENIOR
CORPS?




Americans 55+ have a lifetime of experience to
share and the desire to make a real difference
in their world. They’ve managed households,
been business owners and nurses, farmers and
salespeople, artists and executives. Now they
are ready to put their unique talents and
expertise to work in their communities, and
enrich their own lives in the process.

Senior Corps connects today’s 55+ with the people
and organizations that need them most. We help
them become mentors, coaches or companions to
people in need, or contribute their job skills
and expertise to community projects and
organizations.



Principles that Guide Senior Corps Service


“In every community there is work to be done.
In every nation there are wounds to heal. In
every heart there is power to do it.”


Senior Corps values the contributions our
volunteers make through service to their
communities. Their knowledge, skills, and
life experience are of immeasurable value
to the organizations and people they touch.



Teamwork:

Many volunteers serve in teams, building
affiliations and mutual support, engaging
in joint problem-solving, and drawing on
the complementary skills of the team members.



Diversity:

Senior Corps volunteers represent a diverse
range of incomes, ages, genders, physical
abilities, and ethnic and racial backgrounds.
But they share a common desire to make a
difference.



Capability:

Everyone has unique gifts to share, and our
volunteers make significant contributions by
putting their best talents to work, as leaders,
entrepreneurs, organizers, builders, caregivers
and mentors.



Presence:

The high number of Senior Corps volunteers and
their level of commitment make them an essential
resource in meeting critical community needs.



Flexibility:

Volunteers can move in and out of options as their
circumstances and interests change, and as the
community agencies' needs for volunteers change.



Service-learning:

Volunteers develop skills through training and
new experiences; they are active participants
in the training process, acting as facilitators
and discussion leaders.

ACTIVITIES
FOR
SENIOR
CITIZENS




The YWCA is the logical place to check for
Senior Exercise Programs and other senior
citizen activities.

Did you know that most local hospitals also
have great activities for senior citizens?

There are professionals on duty to supervise
the types of exercises you need and can
tolerate. Call your hospital for more
information.

Also ask your doctor for recommendations or
referals to senior activities, your insurance
just MIGHT cover the cost. Worth checking into.
