Volunteer Service Stipend Programs

Participants are enrollees in Senior Corps, a federal program for low-income people age 55+. Enrollees are not employed but are volunteers who receive a small hourly stipend for service (20 hours/week for most). The stipend received will not affect other benefits. Volunteers who are not income-eligible are welcome but do not receive stipends.
