RSVP – Your Invitation to Volunteer:
Engaging People 55 & Better. Meeting Community Needs. Enriching the Lives of Volunteers.
We Need You! If you are 55 years old or better we encourage you to join RSVP – Your Invitation to Volunteer. Volunteering has been said to be the “secret ingredient” to staying healthy and fulfilled. Giving back is not just good for you it makes a difference for others!
RSVP, part of the Senior Corps national service program, helps people volunteer in their community by partnering with nonprofits and schools. We thank the RSVP volunteers who generously share their time! We hope you will join us too.
How Will You Make A Difference?
RSVP Volunteer Time = Focused Results. Each year 400 RSVP volunteers are addressing the most pressing needs, therefore making the most collective positive impact. RSVP can help you find the volunteering that is just right for you, and makes a difference for others.
RSVP membership is free, and benefits are available to people choosing to serve in an RSVP Focus Area activity. We are accepting new volunteers into RSVP for Focus Area activities. If you want to serve in other ways, we are ready to help you get connected. Regular and flexible schedules are available in Kalamazoo County, with a few offered in Calhoun County.
