Senior Corps Week is a program held by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and runs from May 6 - 10, 2013.  Senior Corps taps the skills, talents, and experience of more than 330,000 Americans age 55 and over to meet a wide range of community challenges through its three programs – RSVP, Foster Grandparents, and Senior Companions.

There are numerous ways people can participate in Senior Corps Week and recognize the impact these programs make in our community:

  • Participate in a site visit, recognition ceremony, or roundtable discussion on the importance of volunteerism and senior service in your state or district;
  • Become an Honorary Senior Corps Member for a day and work alongside Senior Corps members in a service project in your community;
  • Recognize the impact of Senior Corps using social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, or your website.  You can connect with Senior Corps programs on facebook.com/seniorcorps, and follow us on Twitter using @seniorcorps and @nationalservice.
