Compassion to Action: Celebrating National Volunteer Week, April 18-24, 2010
Adults Many adults seek to make a contribution to society
and share their skills by coaching a sports team, partici- pating on a committee or volunteering at a child’s school. It is also important to recognize the high rate of informal volunteering, for example, helping an indi- vidual who is not connected to an organization. Adults who volunteer their time expand their networks and make meaningful community connections. Suggested volunteer opportunities: Board of directors, parent councils, community development.
New retirees/Older Adults Newly retired individuals are looking to share their
skills with less structure or in some cases, on a project- by-project basis. Others are interested in addressing world issues and in doing so, establish charities or take part in overseas development. Older adults who vol- unteer have greater social connectedness and maintain better health in later years.
