Volunteer

The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is a national program created by Congress in 1971 to encourage individuals 55 years of age and older to put their skills and life experience to work for their communities through volunteerism. RSVP is one of the components of the National Senior Service Corps and a proud part of the USA Freedom Corps, the President's Call to Service.

Benefits

  • Annual recognition events to honor volunteers for their service.
  • Quarterly newsletters with items of general interest and a list of new volunteer opportunities.
  • All RSVP volunteers are covered by supplemental accident and liability insurance while participating in volunteer activities. This coverage is secondary/supplemental and is provided at no cost to the volunteer.
  • The feeling of purpose that comes from being involved and staying active in the community.
