About

Become a RSVP Volunteer in Windham County. We are part of the nationally funded Senior Corps program. We match volunteers 55 and older with the best fit at a local nonprofit. Our focus areas are Healthy Living, Aging in Place, and Transportation so we prioritize matching you with nonprofits that serve elders in those areas.

Volunteer opportunities include:

- Meals on Wheel Driver: Deliver meals once a week to a home-bound elder.

- Neighbor Driver: Give rides to your neighbors without transportation.

- Food Pantry Support: Help sort food donations, stock shelves and give food to people once a week at your local pantry.

- Exercise Leader: Get trained as a Group Exercise Leader and run a class in your town. We have several established Bone Builders classes in the area an are open to all ideas/suggestions.

- American Red Cross Blood Drive Support: Help at monthly blood drives by staffing the check-in table or snack table. Usually 1-2 drives a month and half-day shifts per blood drive available.

- AARP VITA Tax Assistance: Get trained as a tax aide and help people complete their taxes during tax season, usually once a week. No prior experience necessary, training available.

- Mentor at a K-12 School: Serve as a mentor to children at a local school. We've partnered with several different schools. The commitment is usually once a week.

- Advisory Group: Be a member of our Community Advisory Group. Help us do a better job serving our community and plan volunteer opportunities for the future.
