35 people are interested
Do you want to help with after-school reading assistance and mentoring programs where at-risk and low-income children in kindergarten through third grade develop the reading skills they need to succeed in school?
You can make a difference with 2 hours a week! If a child is behind in reading by the third grade they are at a higher risk of not graduating with their class or worse dropping out! Call about an opportunity in your area to be the difference!!

About Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Pinellas County
Pinellas Opportunity Council, Inc., 501 First Avenue North, Suite 517, St. Petersburg, FL 33701, US
The purpose of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Pinellas and Pasco Counties (RSVP) is to create meaningful opportunities for persons 55 years of age and above to participate more fully in the life of their community through volunteer service.
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 years and over. You can use the skills and talents you’ve learned over the years, or develop new ones while serving in a variety of volunteer activities within your community.
We strengthen the communities we serve by addressing identified significant local needs, such as homelessness, food insecurity, aging in place for seniors, children in welfare and safety programs, and veterans and military families. RSVP takes the guesswork out of volunteering by partnering with a variety of nonprofit agencies in Pinellas and Pasco Counties to help you find the right fit for your volunteer service. You choose where, when, and how often you want to spend your time!
Benfits of RSVP include: mileage reimbursement for travel to and from your volunteer station, accident and personal liability insurance, small death benefit while performing volunteer duties, volunteer recognition events, socialization with peers, and personal growth. Oh, and did we mention, the ability to make a lasting difference on those in need?
We'll work with your schedule.
