The time and talents of Pennsylvania’s 1.9 million adults over the age of 65 are among our commonwealth’s greatest untapped resources. Volunteer opportunities exist for people of all ages and levels of physical ability. The benefits of volunteering go beyond the good feeling that comes from helping others; it’s also a chance to make new friends. Your local Area Agency on Aging may have opportunities for you to volunteer in the following programs:

  • APPRISE - Health Insurance Counseling Program
  • Foster Grandparent Program
  • Ombudsman Program
  • PEER - Pennsylvania's Empowered Expert Residents 
  • Retired Senior Volunteer Program
  • Senior Companion Program
Reach out to your local Area Agency on Aging to find out more about volunteering. Additional opportunities to volunteer can be found through PennSERVE.
