    • Abstract:
      This article discusses senior volunteer leaders as an untapped public health resource. Although elders are making substantial service contributions, and often serve as behind-the-scenes engines that drive community building and healthy aging projects, their contributions, and the health benefits of these contributions, often go unrecognized. With such notable exceptions as the Gray Panthers, the Foster Grandparents Program, and Experience Corps and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, advocacy and service by older people in areas like public health seldom achieve visibility or public recognition for the immense contributions they make. This article describes the goals and objectives of the California Senior Leaders Project and its accomplishments during the first two years of operation. While the focus of this project was on the older people, an additional objective was to engage seven to ten graduate students in public health and others in working collaboratively with older people through service-learning classes.
