Webinar: New Senior Corps Research

Posted by Corporation for National & Community Service on July 10, 2017

Exciting New Senior Corps Research
Seniors Contribute Time and Talents to Service

In 2015, CNCS launched a longitudinal study of the Senior Corps program – one sample included Senior Corps volunteers in the Foster Grandparent (FG) and Senior Companion (SC) programs, and a second sample included caregivers who receive respite from Senior Companions.

The study of the FG and SC volunteers surveyed nearly 1000 senior national service volunteers at initial entry into Senior Corps and at one and two year follow-up points.

Findings from the first follow-ups in both studies demonstrate promising results for Senior Corps volunteers and caregivers. We’re excited to share some of these highlights with you next month.

RSVP for the Research and Evidence webinar on July 26, 2017 at 1:00pm ET we’ll discuss the full findings from the first year follow-up of these studies. And as always, check out the Evidence Exchange where we’ll be posting the full report.
