The Rural Alaska Community Action Program (RurAL CAP) provides volunteer opportunities for older
adults (ages 55+) to give back to their communities. The program relies on partnerships with volunteer
host sites. Host sites can be schools, pre-k education, afterschool programs, senior centers, non-profits,
health posts, etc. Host Sites designate a site supervisor to support the volunteers. Two volunteer
programs are currently available: The Elder Mentor Program and The Senior Companion Program.
Elder Mentors volunteer in schools, Head Starts, or Afterschool Programs as a positive role model and
mentor for youth. Senior Companions volunteer with seniors who need extra assistance to lead healthy
independent lives. Both programs provide a non-taxable stipend to income eligible volunteers. If you are
