Become a Volunteer Health and Wellness Leader

Our partners rely on volunteer leaders to conduct STEADY U, HEALTHY U and other community-based health and wellness programs. You don't have to be a subject matter expert. If you're comfortable in working with a small group, consider training to become a class facilitator to help others live happier, healthier lives.

Being a volunteer health and wellness leader may be for you if you are interested in:

  • Volunteering in a meaningful way;
  • Working with adults and leading small groups;
  • Improving the health of your community; and
  • Enjoying and sharing the benefits of healthy living.

You'll earn pride, satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment, along with a deep connection to others in your community who, like you, are learning how to live "Well Beyond 60!" Older adults who stay active through volunteering and other activities may also see improved physical and mental health, according to research from the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Fill out the form on this page and a representative will contact you about opportunities available in your community.

You can also contact your area agency on aging at 1-866-243-5678 to learn more and volunteer.
