There are seniors who need better access to fitness activities because they are homebound, a situation made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have opportunities to train as a Bone Builders instructor. Bone Builders is an osteoporosis prevention fitness class developed by Tufts University to help improve bone density, balance and flexibility. We also have opportunities to train to lead other workshops, including but not limited to self-care, self-management of chronic illnesses, etc.
About Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Collier County

To provide quality strategic Human Resources leadership and technical expertise to both the internal and external customers of the Collier County Board of County Commissioners that "Exceed the Expectations" of our customers, support the wellness of our employees and demonstrate unquestionable ethical values.
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
- Healthy Futures
- Veterans and Military Families
