Volunteers for Community Impact

The Reading Accelerated Program (RAP) is for first grade students who have fallen behind in reading. You will tutor two students a day-one half hour each. The students come in once a week for help during their electives time. Opportunities will be in one of the Seminole County Elementary Schools.

Once you have become a Retired and Senior Volunteer through the RSVP program, you will have to sign up as a dividend (what SCPS calls a volunteer), go through an orientation, background check, including fingerprints, and a special training.

Trainings are scheduled for the start of the school year, but you can get signed up now! This opportunity is only for Seminole County Residents.

Mission Statement

Our mission: "Improving Lives Through Volunteerism."

Description

We are the leading organization for senior volunteerism in the greater Central Florida area, serving Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties. Just last year, 1,186 caring adult volunteers gave 438,683 hours of service. That is more than $9.5 million dollars worth of volunteer service being poured back into our communities.

Previously known as Florida Senior Programs, VCI has been the sponsoring agency for the REtired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and Foster Grandparent Programs since 1977. Our 36 year presence has proven our aptitude for providing meaningful and impactful volunteer experiences.

VCI provides membership benefits and support to volunteers aged 55+, at no cost to the volunteers or their volunteer stations. Just a few of the benefits of membership include: Supplemental insurance while volunteering, a dedicated coordinator, and matching to find the perfect position to fit the interest of the volunteer.
