Volunteering has become a meaningful activity for all ages – adolescents, adults within the work force, and retirees. Research has proven the positive rewards of doing for others and finding meaning in activities. Meaningful activity through volunteerism greatly contributes to an older person’s ability to age successfully. The delay of retirement, and the return and staying power of women in the work force have contributed to the decline in volunteer numbers. The need for volunteers of all ages continues. Older volunteers, with their longer experience, may rise to the leadership within nonprofit organizations whose programs and activities depend on voluntary help.
