Silver Corps

Host: NYC Department for the Aging


Silver Corps is an AmeriCorps-funded initiative through the NYC Department for the Aging. The program mission is to connect adults 55+ to volunteer assignments at a partner organization, while they simultaneously engage in training, and/or credentialing with the end goal of obtaining sustainable employment. Our participants offer their time, skills, and experience to community organizations by volunteering at least 10 hours a week. Silver Corps volunteers receive a modest stipend for their volunteer engagement, in addition to a travel reimbursement. Silver Corps participants also work with a job developer towards their employment goals.
