Retirees Get Involved

Published 6:44 am Saturday, June 2, 2012

(NAPSI)—Recent retirees are looking to community organizations for meaningful ways to stay active and these organizations are tapping into the retirees’ expertise by creating meaningful opportunities for them to contribute.

In addition to traditional roles like delivering meals or providing rides, community organizations are now looking to skilled volunteers for program development, mentoring, leadership coaching, tutoring and providing management assistance for nonprofit organizations.

With cuts in funding and the demand for critical services on the rise, volunteers help fill the void by sharing knowledge from their years of professional experience to help those in their community.
