Our Programs

The State Office of Volunteerism, is not just Volunteer Delaware. We have many programs designed to help you find the perfect volunteer opportunity! 

Volunteer Delaware 50+

Volunteer Delaware 50+, part of Volunteer Delaware, helps individuals age 50 and older use the skills and talents learned over the years, or develop new ones while serving in a variety of volunteer activities within the community. Volunteer Delaware 50+ volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve, with their preferred level of commitment.

Join the more than 2,500 Volunteer Delaware 50+ members and start making a difference today.

The Foster Grandparent Program

If you are 55, or older, and wish to share your experience and compassion with the youth in your community, you have what it takes to be a Foster Grandparent! As a Foster Grandparent, you are a role model, a mentor, and a friend. You will receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where you serve, and supplemental accident and liability insurance while on duty. Foster Grandparents serve up to 40 hours per week. Some volunteers may qualify to earn a tax-free, hourly stipend. So get involved, and join today!

Americorps

AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a difference in your life as well as the lives of those around you. Similar to a domestic Peace Corps, it is a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others in addition to helping others and meeting critical needs in your community. AmeriCorps matches your interests to the area of the country in which you would like to serve, creating a unique way to serve others. When a group of people come together with a goal in mind they can change the world. Whether your service makes a community safer, gives a child a second chance, or helps protect the environment, you'll be getting things done through AmeriCorps!
