WHO WE ARE

The Retired Senior and Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over. They use the skills and talents learned over the years, and develop new ones while serving in a variety of volunteer activities within our communities. RSVP volunteers choose how, where and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week. Volunteers receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where they will serve and supplemental insurance while on duty. RSVP volunteers do not receive monetary incentives, but sponsoring organizations may reimburse them for some costs incurred during service.

Service opportunities are as diverse as the communities in which volunteers serve and may include:

  • Transporting the disabled
  • Providing food to the hungry
  • Assisting seniors with prescriptions and medical referrals
  • Providing capacity building for non-profit organizations
  • Organizing neighborhood watch programs
  • Tutoring and mentoring disadvantaged or disabled youth
  • Renovating homes
  • Teaching English to immigrants
  • Assisting victims of natural disasters

Program Mission

To engage men and women age 55 and better in meaningful volunteer service that strenthens the well being of both self and community.
