CURRY COUNTY RETIRED SENIOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Curry County RSVP/FGP

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.

RSVP Volunteers provide a wide range of important community services in areas such as homeland security, public safety, health, education, the environment and elder care. They may tutor children in reading and math, respond to natural disasters, help to build houses, model parenting skills to teen parents, participate in neighborhood watch programs, plan community gardens, deliver meals, or help community organizations operate more efficiently. Whatever your interests and background, there is certainly an RSVP opportunity to match!

Terms: Volunteer must be at least 55 years of age

Mission Statement

The Curry County Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and Foster Grandparent Program's (FGP) mission is to inform and to enhance the quality of life and to foster lifelong learning and activities for the seniors in this community. Curry County is committed to the idea that involving volunteers in senior activities as well as the Clovis Municipal Schools, will assist in carrying out this mission for the senior community. Therefore, we believe that: Senior volunteers allow Curry County to provide enhanced services to the senior community. A successful volunteer program requires that staff and volunteers work as a team to implement the mission and goals of Curry County. "Volunteers do not get paid. Not because they're useless, but because they are priceless" is the quote once uttered by Sherry Anderson. We have now adopted this as our motto and firmly believe all senior volunteers are priceless.

Description

Foster Grandparents Program:

FGP has been in Curry County for over 21 years. During this time hundreds of Foster Grandparents have assisted in a levels of education, giving hundreds of teachers and thousands of students the extra advantage needed to ensure educational and life success. As a Curry County FGP, you will be assigned to a participating educational organization, specific teacher and specific children. These children are selected by the teachers as needing additional one on one tutoring and mentoring. This is where you step in. You are asked to volunteer roughly 20 hours per week, and based on income eligibility guidelines, may even qualify for a tax free monthly stipend for your service.

Retired Senior Volunteer Program:

RSVP is established in several locations throughout Curry County ranging from the Food Bank, Senior Centers and Plains Regional Medical Center. With over 200 active volunteers, thousands of lives are impacted daily. From seniors to new born babies, RSVP volunteers have a second to none attitude about improving the lives of all Curry County residents. With a 5 hour per month minimum, there is no reason every senior shouldn't be a RSVP member.
