If you’re over 55, you likely have many talents and skills—and extra time—to share as a volunteer and give back to your community.

Check out your local RSVP: Retired & Senior Volunteer Program
RSVP recruits and encourages people 55 years and older to share their unique skills, talents, and experience. From building houses to immunizing children, from enhancing the capacity of non-profit organizations to improving and protecting the environment, RSVP volunteers put their unique talents to work to make a difference. One time, ongoing, and periodic opportunities are available as well as virtual opportunities you can do from home.

Watch this short video to see RSVP volunteers describe what they do, why they do it, and how they know they’re making an impact in our community.
