RSVP 55+ Volunteer Program - Boone & Greene Counties
RSVP relies on the desire of those 55 and older
to be of service to others.
 
RSVP recruits individuals age 55 and older to meet
community needs through volunteerism.
 
>RSVP has no restrictions based on education, income, experience, ethnic background or creed.
>Volunteers are given the opportunity to make new friends, volunteer on their schedule, choose assignments that coincide with their special interests, and a chance to make a difference in their community.
>Volunteering allows you to use your experience, skills and wisdom to help your neighbors and those in need.
