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, and follow us on Twitter using @seniorcorps and @nationalservice.
