RSVP is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

Leading with a Lifetime of Experience

  • Supporting local food pantries
  • Providing transportation for seniors
  • Mentoring children and adults in financial literacy

Enrich Your Life and the Lives of Others

Studies show that volunteering helps us enjoy healthier, longer, and more fulfilling lives. Most RSVP’ers tell us that they get more out of volunteering than the folks they are helping. Volunteering with RSVP keeps people connected to their community and provides outstanding social opportunities to meet other like-minded volunteers all year long.

  • Personalized volunteer placement
  • Free accident and liability insurance while serving
  • Optional mileage and meal reimbursement
