AmeriCorps Seniors (formerly RSVP) is the largest volunteer mobilizing and linking program in the country for people age 55 and older. We assist volunteers in locating opportunities that will use their experience and skills to meet critical needs in their local community. Our AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers get to choose where they want to serve, how much time they wish to contribute, and when they are able to volunteer. Volunteers are eligible to receive no-cost supplemental insurance and partial mileage reimbursement. 

Wish List:
  • coupons, tickets, gift cards, etc. for volunteers 
  • sponsorship of special programs, volunteer recognition luncheon, newsletter, and volunteer awards
