RSVP Volunteer Program
RSVP is a part of Americorps Seniors, along with Foster Grandparents and Senior Companions. The mission of Americorps is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering.
Work Wonders with Your Experience
Now is the time to put your skills and talents to good use by volunteering through RSVP.
RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and older. Join RSVP and join nearly 220,000 volunteers across the country who are tackling tough issues in their communities.
Approved volunteers receive training from the organization where they will serve, and supplemental insurance while on duty. RSVP volunteers do not receive monetary incentives; however those who drive quite a bit will have the opportunity to receive a gas gift card. Volunteers are also invited to a yearly recognition banquet.
RSVP volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week. And, you choose whether you want to draw on your skills or develop new ones.
A Range of Opportunities
RSVP offers a full range of volunteer opportunities with thousands of local and national organizations. In Sedgwick County, RSVP works with more than 50 different non-profit agencies. For example, you may:
- Mobilize other volunteers
- Assist others to age in place
- Share legal or financial expertise
- Assist Veterans and Military Families
- Assist victims of natural disasters
- Plan and participate in special events
- And much, much more!
