AmeriCorps Seniors has been serving residents of Steuben County since 1974. AmeriCorps Seniors is the premier organization engaging senior volunteers in improving and enriching the lives of residents of all ages in our community. Since its early days in Steuben County, AmeriCorps Seniors has grown to over 400 volunteers providing $1.6 million of service according to Independent Sector, a leadership network for nonprofits, foundations, and corporations committed to advancing the common good. Our dedicated volunteers give over 100,000 hours of service per year to enhance the quality of life for residents in Steuben County.
AmeriCorps Seniors promotes the concept of productive aging, providing individuals, age 55 and older, with meaningful work, while utilizing them as community builders. AmeriCorps Seniors, through a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, provide major cost savings to agencies and municipalities and make a significant impact on critical community needs.
