ORGANIZATION: Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Collier County

  • 4 people are interested

In addition to hurricanes and major storms, Collier County also experiences other disasters that require providing those impacted with some help and relief. Collier County's Bureau of Emergency Services (BES) does a tremendous job responding to all disasters, They also work to help prepare the community for disasters to help minimize the damage caused by these disasters. We have opportunities for volunteers to help present "Community Emergency Plans" to local community residents. All materials are prepared in advance. Presentations include a representative from Collier County Emergency Management Services (EMS) who provides a CPR/AED demonstration. This is a good opportunity for retired firemen, retired emergency personnel/first responders, and Veterans. However, this type of experience is not required. If you have a passion for helping others learn how to keep themselves and their loved ones safe we invite you to volunteer as well!

Description

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program or RSVP is a national volunteer program that is federally funded by AmeriCorps Seniors, which is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). The AmeriCorps Seniors project links the skills, talents, and expertise of volunteers aged 55 and over to community organizations that are working to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Since 1971, thousands of AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP volunteers have served at community organizations throughout the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Locally, since the start of AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP of Collier County in 1998, over 1,900 volunteers have contributed 1.5 million hours of service at 153 Volunteer Stations across Collier County. This equates to a savings of $38.2 million (independentsector.org) to our county because of the time and talents volunteers dedicate to making a difference in the following focus areas:

  • Disaster Services
  • Economic Opportunity
  • Education
  • Healthy Futures
  • Veterans and Military Families
