Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

What is RSVP?

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over. By becoming a National Service volunteer you can use the skills and talents you have learned over the years, or develop new ones while serving in a variety of volunteer activities within our community.  Established over 40 years ago, the federally supported program connects individuals who are at 55+ to volunteer opportunities that impact specific needs and goals in their local communities.  The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of three programs operated by the Corporation for National and Community Service under Senior Corps.  See our Event Calendar here (coming soon).
