Volunteer Opportunities in Retirement


We know it can be difficult to find time to volunteer but the benefits are enormous to you, your family and your community. Finding the right match is vital in getting the most out of the experience. We go into much more detail about identifying the right organization for you in the volunteer tasks section.


Let’s touch on some of the top benefits of volunteering for retirees. First, your community needs you. Some of the neediest and most worthwhile cases are supported 100% by volunteers. Without people like you, those who need it most would not be able to receive support. Even the smallest amount of time can make a huge difference in the lives of people, animals and organizations in need.


Another benefit is how great you will feel after the experience. Humans are meant to give to others. The more we give, the better we feel. You’ll see a dramatic change in both your mind and body. Volunteering can reduce stress, anger and anxiety. It can increase your self-confidence as well as provide a sense of purpose. Volunteers tend to be more physically active which can mean you are less likely to develop high blood pressure or symptoms of chronic pain. Imagine that, you help others in need but also get all these benefits too. That’s a win-win!


Volunteering is also a great way to meet new people with similar interests. You’ll all be striving toward the same goal and through teamwork, will be able to make a real difference.
