About the Program

You’ve gained a lifetime of 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 over. Join RSVP and you join nearly 500,000 volunteers across the country who are tackling tough issues in their communities.

With RSVP, you choose how and where you want to serve. You choose the amount of time you want to give. And, you choose whether you want to draw on your skills or develop new ones. In short, you find the opportunity that’s right for you.


Our mission is to enable persons age 55 and over to remain physically and mentally active through significant volunteer work by making a positive difference in the lives of others and their community.


RSVP publishes a monthly newsletter filled with news and updates about the program. Please take a moment to read our current newsletters for the RSVP program: current newsletter
