Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
Experience the fulfillment of making a difference and the joy of lifelong learning with Elder Care Services' Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). As part of one of the nation's largest volunteer networks for individuals aged 55 and older, RSVP provides diverse service opportunities that allow you to utilize your existing skills or develop new ones while contributing to the betterment of our community.
As an RSVP volunteer, you can choose from a range of impactful activities tailored to your interests and availability. Whether it's sorting items at local food banks, providing vital companionship through telephone reassurance to isolated seniors, nurturing community gardens, supporting the administrative needs of local nonprofits, or delivering Meals on Wheels, you'll have the freedom to serve in a way that resonates with you.
RSVP values your commitment and empowers you to decide how, where, and how often you want to dedicate your time. Whether you have a few hours or up to 40 hours per week to spare, your contribution will make a meaningful impact.
Service opportunities are as diverse as the communities in which volunteers serve and may include:
- Sorting items at local food banks
- Offering telephone reassurance to isolated seniors
- Helping in community gardens
- Assisting the administration departments of local non-profits
- Delivering Meals on Wheels
We ensure that RSVP volunteers are well-prepared and supported throughout their journey. You'll receive comprehensive pre-service orientation, specialized training from the organizations you serve, and supplemental insurance coverage while on duty. While monetary incentives are not provided, you may be eligible for reimbursement of certain service-related expenses.
Engaging with RSVP goes beyond giving back. It's an opportunity to expand your horizons, cultivate new friendships, and embrace the joy of lifelong learning. Research shows that active volunteerism among older adults promotes cognitive vitality, social connection, and overall well-being.
Join our vibrant community of retired and senior volunteers and discover the limitless possibilities of making a positive impact. Together, let's create a brighter future for our community through the invaluable contributions of experienced and compassionate individuals like you.
