TSCOR is powered by volunteers with a common goal – improving the lives of older adults in our community. You can get involved with service programs for seniors, participate in a lifelong learning program 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.
