(NAPSI)—While the number of older volunteers who want to contribute their time and talent is increasing, not all organizations are prepared to take advantage of this growing resource.

Often, organizations need to take a fresh look at what this new generation of baby boomer volunteers can contribute. That may mean reconsidering the types of volunteer opportunities they offer, so they can make the most of the mentoring and work experiences these boomers bring.

Fortunately, the Aging Network’s Volunteer Collaborative is designed to help agencies prepare for the influx of boomers and to take full advantage of the volunteers they have.

The Collaborative is a full-service support center designed to help the agencies of the Aging Network engage older adults in meaningful service. Its website provides tools and resources to build a strong volunteer program.
