Agency Description: The Jackson County Senior Center provides fun, engaging programs to promote health and wellness, socialization, and learning for anyone 50 years or older.

Volunteer Involvement: Volunteers can help with dinner/special events, provide entertainment such as singing or playing instruments, serve as "guest" teachers for art classes once a week (also exercise and creative writing classes), assist with planning events, help with maintaining the library and kitchen, and do some manual labor such as organizing and setting up for events.
