  • Golden Years, Golden Opportunities: Advice for Seniors from Seniors

    Are you are senior who has only "hit her stride" after extended exploration and experimentation with a variety of volunteering opportunities? What advice do you have to share with fellow seniors about selecting appropriate service activities?

    Hello. I'm retired and volunteering at a number of places. My primary volunteer position is with the City of San Mateo, in the City Manager's Office, supporting our Volunteer Coordinator. I enjoy using my social media and communication skills to support volunteerism in my city, plus I love having a destination that I can walk to three times a week. My advice is to start volunteering, explore additional volunteer opportunities, and not to settle on just one thing for years -- in other words, be a lifelong learner! I'm always on the lookout for new short-term volunteer opportunities in addition to my city position.

    When I retired, I signed up for graphic design courses at my local college and ended up with a paid internship to create artwork and quotes for caregivers of elderly parents. I invite you to see my images on 22 boards at Pinterest.com/carelinx or follow me on Facebook.com/carelinx When you volunteer or keep seeking new projects, you never know where you land!

    Best wishes with this bulletin board.
