RSVP will launch a new program in the Spring to teach young students (Pre-school through grade 3) Spanish. This is not normally taught in the Public Schools until 7th grade, so we are reaching them at a time when their minds are open to a new language without a "translation" step. We will begin with a pilot program in the East Stroudsburg area and then as the program develops, expand outwards to the other districts and multiple locations. We are very excited to be able to offer this program here in the county. We will be seeking bilingual volunteers who are willing to be trained and obtain all the necessary clearances (state mandated).
In addition, we need bilingual volunteers to assist in other areas, like Grocery Shopping, Friendly Visiting and Friendly Phone calling for homebound residents.

Make a Difference in Your Community!
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provides opportunities for people 55 and over to make a difference in their community through volunteer service. RSVP volunteers contribute anywhere from a few to over forty hours a week, serving through schools, day care centers, police departments, hospitals and other nonprofit and public organizations to help meet critical community needs. RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers. RSVP matches the personal interests and skills of older Americans with opportunities to help solve community problems and offers supplemental insurance while on duty, and on-the-job training from the agency or organization where volunteers are placed.
