Engage: Age With Purpose (Senior Volunteer Opportunities)
UJA-Federation of New York's Engage Service Corps is for boomers and beyond who want to effect powerful change within the community through hands-on activities. This new model of volunteering is perfect for the generation of game changers looking to reshape society at every stage of their lives.
Through Engage, you can use your skills, expertise, passion and leadership to address issues such as poverty, hunger, joblessness, education, the isolated elderly, and children with special needs - in a way that fits into your life.
(Members of Giving Dolls raise money for their program at their annual bake sale. The Giving Dolls program knits clothing for dolls which are given to children who have experienced trauma.)
