Keeping Seasoned Volunteers, Spicy!: Creating an Engaging Experience for Older Adults in Service
Many organizations can benefit from older adult members in their national service program but are unsure about recruitment, expectations and structure within their existing program design. For long standing Senior Corps programs, new staff may need ideas on how to retain and support their older adults members. This workshop is tailored to programs that have a great service opportunity for older adults and want to learn best practices for retention and support.
We also will have an exhibitor booth. Look for pictures from the event at @SISGIGroup on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and #SISGITraining
