National Volunteer Week Twitter Chat
Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Section: April Associate Newsletter

Designed to honor the impact of volunteers in communities and inspire others to serve, n4a and engAGED: The National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults celebrated National Volunteer Week with a Twitter Chat to showcase innovative volunteer programs and share proven resources for recruiting and retaining older adult volunteers.

Based on responses to surveys, we estimate that at least 90,000 volunteers assist Area Agencies on Aging to serve older adults in communities around the country. Not only are these volunteers making a difference in their communities, but they are staying active and reaping major physical, mental and emotional benefits by volunteering. National Volunteer Week may be over, but you can use resources from engAGED to help older adults find volunteer opportunities in your community year round!
