We are currently seeking volunteers to serve as drivers for several local non-profit organizations who provide van services to senior citizens throughout Dauphin County. Drivers can commit just a few hours a month or work on a regular schedule to help provide necessary transportation for older adults travelling to doctor's appointments, shopping errands and more.
Most van services run M-F during regular daytime hours.
Volunteers are being recruited by

To create meaningful opportunities for persons over 55 years of age to remain active in the community through their volunteer service.

RSVP of the Capital Region currently offers volunteer opportunities in Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin and Perry Counties. Although we emphasize the volunteer services of seniors, 55 and older, RSVP enjoys the placement of all adult volunteers. The agency has an active volunteer pool of over 500, providing services at 100+ stations (agencies, schools, government offices). RSVP also creates and operates programs in the areas of tutoring children, mentoring children and teens, environmental monitoring and education, and computer education for seniors. Our goal is to provide volunteer opportunities throughout the senior's volunteer life, changing to meet her/his needs and interests. RSVP also provides transportation supports to assist senior volunteers in their endeavors. Our agency has provided volunteer placement services since 1972.
