RSVP volunteers do have their volunteer hours documented using our volunteer time sheets. Tracking volunteer data is a valuable tool in detailing and highlighting how volunteers impact a community, what they accomplish, and just how valuable they are to the operation of hundreds of non-profit organizations, schools, and health care facilities in our towns and cities.
Without the tracking done by RSVP, the efforts of volunteers remain unidentified in any comprehensive way. This leads to a total lack of knowledge as to the true impact of today's volunteers on the welfare of each and every citizen. In addition, the data collected is shared with legislators who then use the information to help determine how to allocate funds for volunteer efforts such as RSVP and other National Service programs like the Foster Grandparent Program and the Senior Companion Program.
