The senior center cannot survive without volunteers.  Most nonprofit agencies are the same.  It is also a benefit for the volunteer.  Studies show that seniors that volunteer have a 66% decrease in feeling of isolation and 70% had fewer symptoms of depression. It also helps to promote an active lifestyle which reduces health issues.  There are many ways of volunteering.  Everyone has talents that can be used in various venues.  If you would like to volunteer at the center Shonda or I could walk you through the myriad of opportunities at the center.  There are also many other organizations that can use your help.  There is a need at the Ypsilanti Thrift Shop for volunteers (see this month’s newsletter).  RSVP is a national program that can help you find the perfect spot for you.  There is a description of RSVP on the last page.  Ask us about how to sign up for the program.      

Welcome New Interns from Eastern Michigan University!  We want to welcome back returning interns Jacqueline Whitus (Occupational Therapist Studies) and Erica Davis (Field of Social Work). Ladies, thank you for choosing the Ypsilanti Senior Center as your field placements. It is our commitment for students to gain knowledge and exposure to the operational structure of the organization, program development, and most of all member and community engagement.
