Meet Our Volunteer Ambassadors
Volunteer55 focuses on raising the quality of life for both individuals and the community-at-large by encouraging those ages 55 and better to share their skills and time through volunteerism and by encouraging non-profit organizations to actively recruit and enlist the help of older adults to achieve their missions.
Check back every Thursday through until September to learn more about our ambassadors!
