Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)/CSSNYC

The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of the Community Service Society of New York matches the skills and interests of adults aged 55+ with NYC youth impacted by juvenile justice interactions or parental incarceration, mentoring them in skills to overcome challenges and build on strengths. RSVP Mentors will serve as part of a community of older citizens that 'has their back’ and assists youth as they navigate ever shrinking resources in New York City. RSVP staff provides the training, a placement, and support Mentors need at a number of nonprofit, community based partner organizations for youth. Be a Mentor with the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program!

Mission Statement

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) was started in 1966 by the Community Service Society (CSS), an over 170-year-old nonprofit agency. CSS's mission is to identify problems which create a permanent poverty class in New York City, and to advocate the systemic changes required to eliminate such problems. CSS will focus on enabling, empowering and promoting opportunities for poor families and individuals to develop their full potential, to contribute to society, and to realize social, economic and political opportunities.

We match volunteers on the basis of interests and abilities, community needs, geographic convenience, and experience.
