Principles that Guide Senior Corps Service

 

“In every community there is work to be done. In every nation there are wounds to heal. In every heart there is power to do it.”

        —Marianne Williamson

Senior Corps values the contributions our volunteers make through service to their communities. Their knowledge, skills, and life experience are of immeasurable value to the organizations and people they touch.

Teamwork: Many volunteers serve in teams, building affiliations and mutual support, engaging in joint problem-solving, and drawing on the complementary skills of the team members.

Diversity: Senior Corps volunteers represent a diverse range of incomes, ages, genders, physical abilities, and ethnic and racial backgrounds. But they share a common desire to make a difference.

Capability: Everyone has unique gifts to share, and our volunteers make significant contributions by putting their best talents to work, as leaders, entrepreneurs, organizers, builders, caregivers and mentors.

Presence: The high number of Senior Corps volunteers and their level of commitment make them an essential resource in meeting critical community needs.

Flexibility: Volunteers can move in and out of options as their circumstances and interests change, and as the community agencies’ needs for volunteers change.

Service-learning: Volunteers develop skills through training and new experiences; they are active participants in the training process, acting as facilitators and discussion leaders.
