The Senior Citizens Council is a chartered 501 (c)(3), social sector organization. It was founded on March 6, 1968 by a coalition of individuals and organizations who saw the older population as people who merited respect, dignity, and treatment in accordance with their great value to the community.
Our mission is to provide a diversity of services to seniors and to enable them to apply their experience as a resource for meeting critical community needs.
Through the Senior Corps, a nationwide network of volunteer programs, you can learn new skills, meet new people, and use your creative energy and life-long experiences to make a difference in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA).
On any given day, about 250 Senior Corps members are at "work" around the CSRA. If they bare 55 or older, they may be earning an hourly stipend while tutoring children through the Foster Grandparent Program (FGP); they may choose to assist frail or disabled adults through the Senior Companion Program (SCP); or they may be found advising new business, responding to emergencies as Disaster Action Team members, presenting interpretive programs, leading exercise groups, or planting gardens.
