About

Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer and make a difference in the lives of our seniors? Would you like to be part of AmeriCorps, a national program? Alpert Jewish Family and Children's Service is looking for people age 50 or older to become companions in their Seniors Helping Seniors Program. The program requires 9 hours of service per week for 1 year. As a companion, you will assist clients by providing transportation to appointments, grocery shopping and help with errands.

You will receive training, ongoing support and a living allowance of $211 per month. After completing 450 hours, you are eligible for a $1,500 educational voucher which can be used to pay for courses at local colleges (transferable to children and grandchildren).

Make a difference in the life of a senior and in your community! Join AmeriCorps now! Contact Nancy F. 561-238-0235 DFWP, EOE
