RSVP has partnered with the Sunshine Senior Center to recruit volunteers who are 55+ for the specific opportunities listed below.
About The Center
The Sunshine Center is a nationally accredited multi-service center where seniors gather for support, socialization, fitness and/or other services provided for older people. The resources and activities available at this center help many older people remain a vital part of their communities. The center provides a welcoming environment for all seniors in the community interested in taking part in the group atmosphere.Sunshine Center’s Mission
We celebrate aging by partnering with our community to provide creative programming, advocacy and resources that promote vitality, independence and wellness for adults ages 55 or better.What is a Senior Center?
At every stage of life, people are drawn to a community of peers for recreation, socialization, and support from their peers. Children have school and recreational activities such as soccer, dance. Young adults have "hangouts." Adults may find this in the workplace, community or civic organizations, and even the local coffee shop.
Senior centers are dedicated to enriching the lives of older adults, providing a place where they can find a community of peers to socialize, learn together, enhance their well-being, access resources, and find support. Similar to the way a park district may provide classes and activities designed for children and families, a senior center is a place with classes, activities and services designed specifically for older adults.
