Want to make a difference?

Interested in helping elementary school children in low-income communities? Want to empower them with strong literacy skills and, in so doing, help them to expand their life opportunities? Become a tutor at one of 19 schools and do just that! Time commitment is flexible (within reason), though dedication is expected.

**this program is recruiting in the summer, but new volunteers will begin in the next school year.

Guess what?! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and older in all 5 boroughs!

RSVP works with over 250 other partner organizations as well. If this opportunity is not for you, we can help you find another that is. Attend one of our Learn and Link events or schedule a placement interview today!

**Please note: all RSVP volunteer opportunities are for individuals 55 and older; also, most assignments are with our partners located across the City**
