Make an Impact Close to Home
RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and older. In Northern Virginia, RSVP volunteers are responding to community needs in and around Fairfax County, Arlington County, and the City of Alexandria. Individuals choose how, where, and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week. RSVP is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). RSVP-Northern Virginia is sponsored by Volunteer Fairfax in partnership with Volunteer Arlington and Volunteer Alexandria.
