PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Put Your Experience To Work

RSVP shows you how you can apply the skills and wisdom you’ve acquired throughout your life to make a positive difference in the lives of others. A part of Senior Corps, RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people 55 and over, with more than 300,000 volunteers tackling tough issues in communities nationwide. You choose how and where you want to serve, how much time you want to give and whether you want to share skills you have or develop new ones.

Help Where It’s Needed Most

RSVP matches volunteers with thousands of local and national organizations, giving you countless opportunities such as:

  • Disaster Services: Provide critical disaster assistance working at shelters, transporting victims or renovating homes.
  • Economic Opportunity: Move people toward their financial independence and home ownership goals.
  •  Education: Make a difference for local youth by assisting in classrooms or becoming a mentor.
  • Environmental Stewardship: Preserve natural beauty serving in national and local parks and revitalizing important waterways.
  • Healthy Futures: Help other seniors get the health care they need, and improve their quality of life with your companionship.
  • Veterans and Military Families: Support those who served as part of a VA program as a life coach or by connecting them to helpful services.

RSVP Means Results

Your time is valuable, and we maximize every minute. Our highly structured program focuses on making a tangible difference. National performance measures guide our efforts and ensure your work contributes to real, lasting change in your community. We’ll prepare you for success with preservice orientation and training from the organization where you will serve. You’ll even receive supplemental insurance while you’re in service.

Giving Back Is Good For You, Too

Older Americans who volunteer frequently live longer and report better health. Volunteering can also lead to more friendships and a more positive attitude.
