What is RSVP?
RSVP, The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is one of the largest volunteer efforts in the nation. RSVP engages older adults in a diverse range of volunteer activities that address critical community needs. They serve in numerous nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and faith based groups.

- The challenge of interesting assignments
- The pleasure of meeting new people and making new friends
- Supplemental accident and liability insurance
- Recognition of your efforts

RSVP Means Results!
Your time is valuable and we maximize every minute. We’ll prepare you for success with pre-service orientation and training from the organization where you will serve.
We’ll keep in touch to assure that the placement is a good “fit” for you.
When you volunteer, you are not just helping others, you are helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new experiences, new discoveries and new friends. And studies show that volunteer engagement helps you live longer and gives you a positive outlook on life.
