Why not be the one to make a difference?
Started in 1966 by the Community Service Society, a 170-year-old nonprofit agency, RSVP (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program) matches the skills and interests of adults 55 with volunteer opportunities at New York City nonprofit organizations. With more than 3,000 volunteers, CSS/RSVP in New York City is one of the largest senior volunteer programs in the nation. There are 650 RSVPs nationally with RSVP programs operating internationally.
Guess what! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and over in all 5 boroughs!
RSVP has more than 3,000 members who volunteer in many different capacities, but mainly focus on the areas of education, healthy futures, economic opportunity, veterans and military families, environmental stewardship and disaster services. They are involved in volunteer activities such as mentoring a troubled child, providing homework assistance at libraries, tutoring children in schools and after-school programs, providing adult education, GED prep and English as a second language assistance, providing meal delivery to older adults, providing financial coaching and benefits counseling, assisting at soup kitchens and food pantries, and so much more!
We pride ourselves on finding the perfect volunteer assignment that utilizes your lifetime of experience, skills and knowledge to make a difference in a community.
