TSCOR is powered by volunteers with a common goal – improving the lives of older adults in our community. You can provide services for seniors, be a student or instructor in our lifelong learning programs or work behind-the-scenes. Find the place that’s right for you.
Who We Are, What We Do
Use it or lose it, right? TSCOR has programs for older adults who want to keep learning – or for those who want to keep teaching! Stay connected and engaged through Open University, Lunch & Life, or the men’s and women’s groups. And if you’d rather see it than read about it, check out our travel program.
TSCOR volunteers drive our clients to their medical appointments. They also deliver groceries and make friendly calls. Online scheduling puts you in charge and makes volunteering easy. New volunteers are welcomed! Drivers are always needed – now more than ever. Take a virtual spin around the block to see the positive impact you‘ll make.
More to Know
TSCOR is currently accepting applications for the position of Office Manager. We are a small staff of 2 full-time and 2 part-time employees who provide guidance and direction to our volunteers while also assisting in the day-to-day management of the organization’s programs and services.
The office staff works closely with both clients and volunteers – it seems no two days are alike! We’re a busy, interactive, having-fun-while-we-work kinda place. If you’re the type of person who enjoys working with older adults, finds that helping people puts fuel in your tank and that being organized is second nature, then you just might be who we’re looking for!
The office manager is needed, Monday through Friday, 8:30 – 4:30. We are currently working remotely but expect to transition to in-office work soon. You can see the full job description here. Email cover letter and resume to Julie Adams-Buchanan at jadams@TSCOR.org. No phone calls, please.
