RSVP volunteers provide hundreds of community services, ranging from tutoring at-risk youth to planning community gardens to setting up computerized information systems for community health organizations. Through such efforts, RSVP is meeting needs that strained local budgets cannot afford.
What is the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)?
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) helps people age 55 and older find service opportunities in their home communities. RSVP participants serve from a few to over forty hours a week in organizations that range from hospitals and youth recreation centers to local police stations and education facilities. RSVP involves seniors in service that matches their personal interests and makes use of their skills and lifelong experiences.
