SHINE Counselor Volunteer Opportunity

You know your community best!

That’s why we want your help to support your neighbors as they enroll in Medicare for the first time, review plan options, or troubleshoot problems. Your local SHINE program has an opportunity for you to train to be a certified SHINE counselor.

As a SHINE counselor, you give back to your community, sharpen and build skills, and stay engaged and connected in your community.

“What I am doing now is a good reason for me to get up in the morning. It makes me feel good about myself. It lets me know that I am helping people make their lives better.”
–SHINE Volunteer

SHINE screens, trains and certifies all volunteers so you don’t need a background in health insurance to get involved. All you need is integrity, a willingness to learn, a desire to help others, and the time to give.

The SHINE program is currently accepting applications for a new SHINE counselor training in the spring (dates TBD).

A volunteer informational session via Zoom has been scheduled on February 10, 2022, at 10am to learn about this opportunity. Please, register for the info session via email at
