INFORMATON ABOUT RSVP (RETIRED AND SENOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM)
AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) is the nation's largest network for volunteers age 55 and over. The growing segment of our older population is vital to strengthening our communities through their interest in helping others. As an RSVP volunteer, you are strengthening the positive impact people 55 and older have in our communities. Our focus is to incorporate meaningful volunteer opportunities that provide purpose and a way to give back to the community.
RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers as it matches their personal interests with opportunities to serve in their communities.
Current RSVP volunteer positions include local food banks, congregate meal sites, non-profit thrift stores (shopping assistants, sorters, warehouse assistant, truck assistants, retail assistants, assemble furniture in a fully equipped build shop), administrative/clerical assistants, reading/enrichment/tutoring/ mentorship groups and success coaches, construction volunteers (no experience required),, throughout the Greater Tacoma, Puyallup, Gig Harbor, Graham and Lakewood area.
We are continually bringing on new and unique volunteer opportunities.
RSVP is sponsored by Lutheran Community Services Northwest, a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the people it serves.
As a member of RSVP you are invited to our yearly RSVP volunteer recognition event. Every volunteer receives a gift and a catered lunch!
INTERESTED or have questions? Please email or call and we will mail or email an RSVP application for you to complete. We would love to have your join RSVP!
