About the Organization

Parentis Health Foundation of Laguna Hills Joins Forces with AARP Foundation Experience Corps to Positively Enrich the Lives of Older Adults and Youth in Orange County. Older adults who volunteer in the Experience Corps program for a significant number of hours each week reap important physical health, brain health, and community engagement outcomes as a result of their participation. National studies indicate that Experience Corps is a strong model for health promotion and community engagement in older adults. Our volunteers are the centerpiece of the Experience Corps program. They are truly local heroes, women and men devoting a minimum of 5 hours each week for an entire school year to assist struggling students in their community. They come with a wealth of different work and life experiences. Many are longtime residents who want to give back, make a meaningful difference in their cities, towns, neighborhoods and have education backgrounds ranging from High School to advanced degrees. Experience Corps volunteers also benefit from their engagement with the program through increased socialization with peers, they are happier and healthier than adults who do not choose to volunteer.
