Senior volunteer opportunities

What does senior volunteering look like?

As one of our volunteers, you will share important health, wellness, and preventive services information on everything from medication management and diabetes to healthy sexuality and nutrition. Your work in senior centers, faith-based organizations, and other community spaces will link individuals to life-enhancing and even life-saving programs and services. Volunteering is flexible—you can choose to present on the opportunities and topics that are most compatible with your skills and interests. You can also choose your hours and at which locations you would like speak. You don’t have to be an expert, either. We will provide all the training you need free of charge before your first assignment.

If you prefer not to speak in public, help out in our office. We often need help with marketing, administrative duties, and data entry during normal business hours.

Why should you be a senior volunteer?

While anyone 18 and older is potentially eligible to volunteer, those who are 55+ have the opportunity to become members of a special volunteer corps called Metro Atlanta RSVP. RSVP is the largest organization of senior volunteers in the nation. As an RSVP volunteer, you are not only a part of a special team, but you can get reimbursed for travel and receive insurance protection.

I’d like to volunteer! What happens next?

Once you fill out our form, we will give you a quick phone call to ask a few questions to determine whether volunteering with empowerline is a good fit. Then, we’ll invite you to one of our regular open houses where you can learn more about what it’s like to volunteer. If you’re ready to get started, we’ll walk you through the application process and organize your training. Please be aware that all volunteers must pass a background check.
