Mission Statement


The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program exists to provide a variety of opportunities for retired and semi-retired persons aged 55 or older to participate in the life of their community through significant volunteer service.

The Program


RSVP proves that retirement can be an opportunity to put the skill and experience of a lifetime to work for the benefit of others. Through nonprofit organizations and local public agencies in more than one-fourth of the nation's counties, RSVP matches the interests and abilities of seniors with rewarding part-time opportunities for community service.

Anyone aged 55 or over is eligible to be an RSVP volunteer. There are no restrictions based on education, income, experience, ethnic background or creed.


Volunteer positions include classroom aide, adult literacy training, patient care services in hospitals or nursing homes, docent tours in museums, sales clerks in thrift stores, delivering meals to the homebound, clerical assistance in nonprofit agencies, and a variety of other opportunities.

RSVP volunteers serve without compensation, but are reimbursed for transportation expenses. Insurance protection is also provided while volunteers are on assignment.

RSVP volunteers receive a brief orientation from RSVP staff on their role in the program. They are apprised of community volunteer service opportunities that are available and are put in touch with representatives of the agencies in which they are interested. After placement, volunteers receive orientation, training and supervision from their agency.

RSVP volunteers serve through a variety of nonprofit and civic organizations, designated as volunteer stations. The stations include schools, libraries, day care centers, police stations, hospitals, nursing homes, museums, literacy programs, and other community and social service organizations.
