Are you looking for a volunteer activity? If you are over 55 years old, RSVP helps seniors and newly retired individuals stay active and involved. RSVP volunteers discover that when they give, they gain a lot too!

RSVP is a unique program supporting positive aging. It allows people of various skill levels and areas of expertise to tackle problems that directly affect their communities. As an RSVP volunteer, you might support homebound seniors, provide medical transportation, mentor youth. The number of hours you serve is flexible. You will receive a pre-service orientation, followed by appropriate on-the-job training from the agency or organization you are assisting.

Volunteers can choose opportunities that best fit their active lifestyle. You can us the skills you have honed throughout your life and job experiences, or try your hand at something completely new and different!

RSVP volunteers bring a diversity of interests and a uniformity of dedication to community service projects that can change lives. As a volunteer, you will enjoy the satisfaction of making a difference, building stronger and safer neighborhoods, and getting back even more than you give. You will meet new friends who share similar interests.
