Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)/CSSNYC

Want to make a difference?

Do you like working with children? Do you value education? If so, help a child in need succeed. Many of our program partners serve kids from low-income and/or otherwise underprivileged families--provide them with the added support their families cannot currently afford.

Commitments tend to be about once or twice a week. Some are during the school day and others are after school.

Connect with RSVP to learn more about which of our programs may be the best fit for you given student ages, subjects covered, times of day, computer/tech skills, etc. We work with programs across most boroughs. During the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of RSVP partners have transitioned their version of this typically in-person role to a remote/virtual format.


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.
