Opportunities for seniors to reinvest in the lives of future generations

Children need strong, consistent relationships with caring adults that help build confidence and life skills. They need extra love, nurturing and understanding. They need Generations, the home for AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Senior volunteers at Porter-Leath. Generations helps to fill the gap, bringing children in need together with adults and seniors in a mutually-beneficial service experience. 

  • AmeriCorps Seniors serving as Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors and friends to children with exceptional needs. The progrem provides a way for volunteers age 55 and older to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities.
  • AmeriCorps Seniors serving as RSVP volunteers are part of the largest volunteer network in the nation for people age 55 and older. Senior adults can utilize their personal expertise to help others or develop new skills, serving in a variety of volunteer roles in the community.
  • AmeriCorps members at Porter-Leath provides members (individuals 18+) opportunities to gain valuable skills, earn financial support for education, and develop a strong sense of civic responsibilitiy, while they look to enter the workforce or change career paths.
