About Sacramento RSVP
P. O. Box 269131, Sacramento, CA 95826, US
Sacramento RSVP exists to introduce the benefits and rewards of volunteerism to residents of the Sacramento Metropolitan Area who are 55 or more years old. We use a variety of means to highlight the potential of volunteering and then provide a supportive environment for the exploration of opportunities within our community.
Sacramento RSVP is a volunteer recruitment and referral center for Sacramento County and Yolo County residents who are at least 55 years old. At RSVP, all future volunteers get advice in finding long term placements with local agencies working to meet the many unfilled social needs in our community. Consultation with RSVP staff can help potential volunteers identify interesting community activities where their experience and skills will be needed and appreciated. Sacramento RSVP does not itself provide direct social services. Instead, it connects volunteers with agencies where they can share their lifelong knowledge and experience. At the same time, they benefit from a high quality experience that enriches their lives. If you join RSVP, you will be provided with supplemental liability insurance while working at a sponsored agency.
Sacramento RSVP currently has 400 active volunteers serving in over 80 nonprofit and public agencies in the Sacramento Metropolitan Area. Sacramento RSVP is sponsored by the Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance. Sacramento RSVP is part of the nationwide National Senior Service Corp. Nationally, there are over 650 RSVP programs with 467,000 volunteers serving in 65,000 agencies.
