Every day 14 million older Americans contribute 163,000 hours of volunteer work, which gives them a chance to start new, late-life careers. Without volunteers, much of the work of charitable and cultural organizations wouldn't be possible. Volunteer opportunities are endless, encompassing everything from planting trees to working with people with AIDS. This book helps potential volunteers identify organizations in need of their services by listing hundreds of agencies nationwide that employ older volunteers. Organized into broad subject categories-e.g., children, health, hunger and homelessness, the arts, and crime prevention-this book also suggest grass-roots volunteer projects such as cleaning up vacant lots or starting a canned food drive. Organizations in particular need of help are highlighted, and a section on overseas volunteering is included. Although aimed at fiftysomething volunteers, this book provides an excellent source of volunteer opportunities for people of all ages. Highly recommended for public libraries.
