TSCOR is a volunteer organization designed by active, independent and engaged older adults who empower themselves and their communities through lifelong learning and volunteer service. Founded in RVA in 1984, we are a local affiliate of the national Shepherd’s Center of America network. Join us – there’s a place that’s right for you!
Who We Are, What We Do
Use it or lose it! TSCOR’s lifelong learning programs are for anyone who wants to keep learning – or keep teaching! Connect and engage at Open University, Lunch & Life or with the men’s and women’s groups. And if you’re the type of person that would rather see it than read about it, check out our travel program.
TSCOR volunteers drive our clients to their medical appointments and help with their grocery shopping. Online scheduling makes it easy. New volunteers are always welcome! Drivers are especially needed, now more than ever. Take a virtual spin around the block and see the positive impact you can make.
