The goal of this comprehensive volume is to encourage volunteerism among retired and older people, for their own good and for the good of society. To this end, it documents the physical and psychosocial benefits, and the personal rewards, that derive from a productive volunteer experience. The book also discusses volunteerism in the context of changing concepts of aging and retirement in America, and presents an extensive listing of up-to-date opportunities for prospective volunteers, bringing the idea of volunteer work into the 21st century. Three appendices provide both hard data on the ways people volunteer in America today and specific guidance on learning how to use the Internet in volunteering including a useful glossary of Internet terms. A list of sources cited, in print and on the Internet, and an index complete the work.
