Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)/CSSNYC

Want to make a difference?

Do you have a passion for sports? Would you like to make a difference in the lives of student-athletes? Whether you are a sports fan, former student-athlete or family member of one or more, have a knack for fundraising and/or grant writing, or just want to help for whatever reason, this opportunity may be for you. Potential duties may include managing donor data; brainstorming fundraising strategy; interacting directly with existing and potential individual, corporate, and other donors; and writing grants, but feel free to ask if there may be something else you can do more suited to your skill set. During the COVID-19 pandemic, opportunities with this organization are fully remote. (However, in "normal times" there are typically coaching and other in-person roles that involve interaction with the student-athletes themselves.)


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.
