RSVP is designed for persons 55 and older to remain engaged in the community through volunteering. Older adults have a wealth of experience to share and can truly make a difference in our community. RSVP enriches volunteers’ lives by helping them to remain active and meet new friends, and helps the community by empowering volunteers to share their experience to improve our community. 

We mobilize RSVP volunteers to address community needs in Education, Income and Health. RSVP volunteers choose how, where and how often they want to volunteer. Opportunities include:

  • Mentoring and tutoring children
  • Driving seniors to medical appointments
  • Delivering meals to seniors
  • Supporting healthy aging

Connect with us to find these and other local RSVP volunteer opportunities. Our Volunteer Connection staff are expert in helping you navigate the various nonprofit volunteer opportunities in our community. We help volunteers find the right opportunity– whether it's once a week, once a month or once in a while.
