Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)/CSSNYC

Want to make a difference?

Are you intrigued by the idea of serving at a nonprofit environmental education organization dedicated to educating children and adults in the New York metropolitan area; protecting and preserving a park, other open spaces, and waterbodies; and advocating for sustainable environmental policies and practices? If so, why not sign up to assist one or more teachers who work with students ages 4 to 12? No training is necessary and topics vary session to session so you will never get bored. This season, classes are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and the weekends at 10:00 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:30 pm. This is an IN-PERSON assignment in Oakland Gardens, Queens.


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

RSVP works with over 250 partner organizations. If this opportunity is not for you, we can help you find another that is. Inquire about our active opportunities today and/or ask to be added to our contact list for after things settle down!

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

Mission Statement

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) was started in 1966 by the Community Service Society (CSS), an over 170-year-old nonprofit agency. CSS's mission is to identify problems which create a permanent poverty class in New York City, and to advocate the systemic changes required to eliminate such problems. CSS will focus on enabling, empowering and promoting opportunities for poor families and individuals to develop their full potential, to contribute to society, and to realize social, economic and political opportunities.

With more than 2,300 volunteers, RSVP in New York City is one of the largest senior volunteer programs in the nation. There are over 600 RSVPs which operate nationally and many that do so internationally. We match volunteers on the basis of interests and abilities, community needs, geographic convenience, and experience.
