>>>ANNOUNCING<<<
WE ARE ROLLING OUT A NEW AND IMPROVED VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

The Bay County Council on Aging, Inc. is very excited to announce the transition to a new Volunteer Program that will replace the Agency’s RSVP project that will officially end on March 31, 2015. We began the RSVP project almost 30 years ago and the national program has been through many changes and transitions since that time. Our Board of Directors elected to cancel our contract with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and to develop an Agency based volunteer program that would include persons of all ages who choose to volunteer to provide services that assist senior adults in their efforts to remain active, healthy and independent as they remain in their own homes and communities. We know that our volunteers have been serving for this purpose for many years and we could not possibly serve the number of elders that we do without their generous donation of time and talents to our organization as RSVP Volunteers.

The new BCCOA Volunteer Program will allow us to officially include all of our current volunteers along with the many groups that currently volunteer for us including youth, church, civic, school and many other groups that help us each day in our service to elders in our community.

The new program will also allow us to focus on services of local significance rather than programs that have been designated at the national level and may not be relevant or active locally. Our volunteers are awesome and are dedicated to service to others and to the community. We are so excited about the change in our program and know that our volunteers will be also as we together commit to a better quality of life for all the elders we serve.
