Northern Arizona University’s AmeriCorps Seniors program offers the opportunity for adults 55 and older to serve in their community in a variety of capacities. Some of our volunteers serve in schools with high-needs students, while others serve in the homes of home bound adults that need support maintaining their independent lifestyle. AmeriCorps Seniors programs partner with non-profit community organizations to meet an array of needs. Some of our programs offer a stipend to qualifying lower-income older adult, as well as compensation for mileage and training. Whatever the volunteer’s interest, we have a program to match!
