What does AmeriCorps Senior mean to you?
"AmeriCorps Seniors is an invaluable community resource that gives seniors rewarding, fulfilling and memorable ways to make a difference in their communities. Through AmeriCorps Seniors, I have had the opportunity to apply my skills and talents and have a real impact on people's lives. I can't think of a better way to spend my time."
"After retiring from a successful and rewarding career, I wanted to spend my time in ways that mattered. AmeriCorps Seniors allowed me to do just that. They were able to match my experience and qualifications with meaningful volunteer opportunities in my community. It is a great feeling to know that I am making a difference in someone's life."
"The Foster Grandparent Program has enriched my life and given me more than I could ever give in return. The children are warm and loving and never want our time together to end - and neither do I. This is what service is all about. Money cannot buy this type of fulfillment."

"If just one half of the thousands of retirees in Pennsylvania would give just four hours per week to volunteer work, what a wonderful improvement we would make to the quality of life in our communities."

"There is nothing quite like the heartfelt hug and "thank you" I receive as I leave a client's home. I am so grateful for the opportunity that AmeriCorps Seniors has given me to make a difference in the lives of seniors. It is wonderful to be doing something so worthwhile."
