Today’s older adults are volunteering in big numbers, to positive effect, especially when it comes to health benefits. If your clients aren’t already volunteering, this webinar will offer tips on how to encourage them to do so, outlining the many physical and emotional benefits of volunteering. It will also cover strategies for encouraging younger people to volunteer, which enriches the experiences of their older adult partners and carries on a worthy tradition. And there will be intriguing insights into the how volunteering can lead to happiness.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- List three methods for encouraging younger generations to begin volunteering.
- Discover seven direct emotional health benefits associated with being a volunteer.
- Identify where and how older adults volunteer and the resulting economic benefits of their volunteering.
