STRONGER TOGETHER
The National Senior Corps Association (NSCA) and its 500+ member organizations work toward the common goal of achieving adequate federal support and program flexibility for Foster Grandparent, RSVP, and Senior Companion programs nationwide. Embracing the three programs within one association, NSCA is the recognized national leadership organization representing the combined interests of the Senior Corps programs. The National Senior Corps Association works to ensure that the efforts of Senior Corps volunteers will continue meeting the needs and challenges of America's communities.
 
Mission: The National Senior Corps Association promotes, represents, advocates for, and enhances the power of Foster Grandparent, RSVP, and Senior Companion programs nationwide.

We want to personally invite you to become a member of NSCA and be part of a Senior Corps network that is Stronger Together.  In addition to access to the members’ only section of our website, your membership in the National Senior Corps Association will provide you with:
  • A national organization that promotes the combined interests of Foster Grandparent, RSVP and Senior Companion programs nationwide

  • A Washington representative that presents a UNIFIED voice to Members of Congress on Senior Corps issues

  • Collaboration with other organizations in the field of aging and community service

  • Opportunities to share your concerns through yearly surveys and regular communication

  • Action alerts and other timely updates on Congressional legislation and important issues affecting your program(s)

 

NSCA Leadership: The Board of Directors consists of its officers, three members representing each cluster - one each from the Foster Grandparent Program, RSVP, and the Senior Companion Program; and up to three At-Large members. All board members except the At-Large members are Senior Corps Project Directors.
