The Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas Inc. needs SHINE volunteers to help individuals understand Medicare and provide free, unbiased information and counseling. If you want to join an award-winning team and assist seniors, consider becoming a volunteer with SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders).
SHINE volunteers are both active and retired individuals from diverse career and cultural backgrounds. SHINE volunteers enjoy a position that is truly fulfilling and mentally stimulating. As a volunteer, you will receive initial training, continuing education and a supportive environment with dedicated colleagues.
Specially trained SHINE volunteer counselors provide free information and assistance. Consumers can speak to a volunteer by phone or meet with a person for an appointment at our community outreach sites. Consumers contact the statewide Elder Helpline toll-free at 1-800-96-ELDER (1-800-963-5337) and ask to be connected with a SHINE counselor.
