Mission Statement

The mission of the Santa Fe Retired Senior Volunteer Program is to recruit and support senior volunteers to help themselves and others by sharing their experience, care, knowledge, skills and efforts in service for our community. We provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for seniors to meet vital community needs.

We encourage seniors, young and old, to remain or become active to promote good health. Research has revealed that people who are active after retirement live longer, happier, healthier lives.

RSVP is the vital link that connects a lifetime of talents and experiences to the larger community needs. Volunteers provide many varieties of service to the Santa Fe community, and all services are important.

Description

JOIN LIKE-MINDED VOLUNTEERS TO REVITALIZE OUR COMMUNITY

Allow Santa Fe RSVP to guide you to a volunteer opportunity (or two) to suit your passions, skills and schedule. If you are 55 or over, we can enroll you in our program in minutes! Select from almost 70 volunteer sites, and begin following that dream you have always put off. From education or crisis intervention to the environment or hands-on community service, we have the right opportunity for you. After receiving on-site training, you can work 1 to 40 hours a week.

As an RSVP volunteer, you are entitled to free supplemental accident, personal liability and excess automobile liability insurance while you are volunteering and while you travel to and from volunteer jobs. We offer free classes on everything from consumer tips and legal advice to fitness, safe driving and current events, as well as registration and transportation to the N.M. Conference on Aging. You will be invited to our volunteer celebrations with food, speakers, a live band, dancing and door prizes. Along with creative volunteer "thank you" gifts, you will receive birthday recognition, our monthly senior newsletter, and other pertinent mailings.

Our volunteers: Teach adults or children to read * mentor a child * deliver hot meals to the homebound * cook in a community kitchen * distribute commodities to the needy * lead tours of museums * assist in the running of theaters * prepare income taxes * answer hotline phones * monitor state parks * lead nature hikes * conduct consumer advocacy * record books onto tape * build houses * sell in thrift stores * provide office assistance * visit the frail * ...and much more!
