National Volunteer Week 2020

Happy National Volunteer Week. We appreciate our Coming of Age/RSVP volunteers and partner agencies. Thank you for all that you do for our community. #NVW #nationalvolunteerweek

Senior Corps taps the skills, talents, and experience of Americans age 55 and over to meet a wide range of community challenges. Last year, more than 15,000 Texas seniors met critical community needs while contributing to longer, healthier lives through one of three Senior Corps programs:

Foster Grandparents serve one-on-one as tutors and mentors to young people with exceptional needs.

Senior Companions help homebound seniors and other adults maintain independence primarily in their own homes.

RSVP volunteers conduct safety patrols, renovate homes, protect the environment, tutor and mentor youth, respond to natural disasters, and provide other services.

Last year in Texas, Foster Grandparents tutored and mentored 44,290 young people, Senior Companions helped 620 seniors live independently, and RSVP volunteers strengthened the impact of 890 organizations across the state.

This week we celebrated National Volunteer Week and we wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all our amazing volunteers. Thank you for all you do for our community. We appreciate you. #nationalvolunteerweek #nvw
