EBN: Giving and Receiving: The Surprising Side Benefits of Volunteering

We all know that many nonprofits rely on volunteers to achieve their missions. And that volunteers make an important difference in the lives of others. But did you know that volunteers also benefit in direct ways from their service? Research involving volunteers over 50 confirms that they are healthier in mind and body, more socially connected and have better quality of life than their peers.

Join us to learn more about these findings, hear personal accounts and share your own, and find out how you can take advantage of these benefits through Boston Cares.

Presenters: Claire Connacher, doctoral candidate at UMass Boston; Heather MacIndoe, PhD, associate professor and director of the graduate program in public policy at UMass Boston; and Sara Hamilton, executive director of Boston Cares.

Offered by Boston Cares and Encore Boston Network.

Wednesday, June 22, 2022, 10:00 AM until 11:00 AM
Videoconference information will be provided in an email once registration is complete.
