Intergenerational Program Volunteer (remote) - adults 65+ only

Save to Favorites

Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)/CSSNYC

Want to make a difference?

Volunteers 65 and older are needed to connect virtually with local NYC high school and middle school students who are themselves looking for intergenerational connections during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rather than being a one size fits all program, there are many service options to choose from for anyone looking to share wisdom and friendship in a large group, small group, or one-on-one setting. Examples include virtually visiting a middle school classroom for fun, engaging activities; joining the organization's teen interns in teen-led discussion groups, book clubs, small group creative arts programming, etc.; and playing virtual chess. No matter what, kids and older adults are provided the all-too-rare opportunity to be together, enjoy one another’s company, and gain insight into each other’s lives.



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.

Description

RSVP matches adults 55 and older with meaningful volunteer opportunities at New York City nonprofits. 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.
