Volunteering for 55+

Get an overview of the AmeriCorps Seniors volunteer program administered by Senior Affairs.

AmeriCorps Seniors is a suite of national volunteer programs for Americans 55 years and older and is federally funded by AmeriCorps. In New Mexico, AmeriCorps Seniors is jointly administered by the Aging & Long-Term Services Department. The City of Albuquerque Department of Senior Affairs has sponsored AmeriCorps Seniors for over 40 years! It is made up of three programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. All three programs offer orientation, reimbursements for travel, supplemental insurance while serving, and annual recognition events. When you volunteer, you’re not just helping others, you’re helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life! You are needed! Join over 800 other Albuquerque Seniors that make up the AmeriCorps Seniors family!
