SHINE Volunteers Needed


Would you like to know how to live a fun and fulfilling life? Volunteering is the answer. Give unto others, and improve their lives through your presence. Why not empower yourself to have an active mind, better health, a sense of purpose, all while socializing too? The SHINE Program (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) can assist you in all of these endeavors.

SHINE is a free program under the Florida Department of Elder Affairs which is operated locally through the Area Agency on Aging.  Staff and volunteers of the program provide free, unbiased and confidential Medicare health insurance counseling. The program is currently in need of volunteers. Individuals who are passionate about helping prepare others for some of the most crucial decisions in life, like choosing the right Medicare plan, make successful volunteers for SHINE.

Text Box: Perspective of a SHINE Volunteer:“I came to SHINE initially as a client and a caregiver. I became a volunteer for the SHINE program to help others in the way that I was helped.”


The rewards for volunteering with SHINE are abundant. Individuals complete a professional training by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and their local Area Agency on Aging; serve the community by educating others on an individual basis and through outreach events; gain knowledge about Medicare to benefit themselves and loved ones; and become a part of an award-winning team.
