Read this to learn about the PowerUP! initiative and the vast potential in older adult volunteers to power up agencies.
The Administration on Aging (AoA) sees vast potential in older adult volunteers to power up local organizations that serve older adults. Through the Aging Network’s Volunteer Collaborative, funded by AoA, a goal has been set to double the number of volunteers in aging services—to one million volunteers—by 2015. Through a series of efforts, the Volunteer Collaborative is leading a PowerUP! movement to help aging and disability services organizations build their capacity for older adult volunteers through templates, tools, and training for use by local organizations and programs.
See the concepts that support this innovative, capacity-building idea to PowerUP! aging service organizations to help all existing and future generations of Americans age with dignity, independence, and the highest quality of life possible.
