As a social volunteer program, Give 5 inspires individuals to be active in their community. The initiative is geared for "retired (or almost retired) baby boomers aged 60+ who live in the Greene County" in Springfield.
The social volunteer program is class-based, with groups of 20 to 25. Throughout the duration of Give 5, these classes meet once a week for five weeks. They tour local not-for-profits, learn about their missions statements and gain insight into social categories like poverty, climate change, and so on. These nonprofits pitch opportunities to participants in the program.
Give 5 is concerned with providing the grounds for social thriving and allows for retirees to utilize their abundant skillset, passion, and talents to help out for the greater good.
