Mission Statement

Founded in 1991, our mission consists of three principal pillars: - INCREASE volunteer participation in community service projects; - PROVIDE our nonprofit partners with access to volunteer labor and other RESOURCES; and - EDUCATE and encourage people to engage in the broader social issues affecting the greater Los Angeles Community. The RSVP Program at L.A. Works is a federally funded program free to members, with the mission of mobilizing 55 and older volunteers for a large variety of projects with nonprofits all over Los Angeles. Consider us a one-stop-shop for finding different ways to volunteer and help smaller local nonprofits accomplish their missions.
