How to Volunteer

Persons fifty-five years of age or older, retired or still active in the work force, who want to share their lifetime experience and make a difference in the lives of those in need.

The initial step includes completion of an application form and an interview with the program director. Once the assignment is made, the volunteer receives a brief orientation from the RSVP staff, as well as additional instruction and supervision at the volunteer site.
