Improving the health and lives of older adults – particularly those with multiple chronic health conditions – is a goal shared by the healthcare providers and community-based organizations (CBOs) that serve them. CBOs play a vital role in addressing this goal by engaging and educating older adults through health workshops and learning materials, which are essential for achieving lasting change and improving healthy behaviors. Volunteers can be a powerful resource to aid this growth.   

This guide provides a case study for organizations interested in developing a volunteer-driven program for older adults to manage and enhance their health through community engagement and education. Additionally, it gives an overview of how to plan, design, and implement a Volunteer Health Corps, and includes practical tips and strategies.
