RSVP Why Volunteer?

When you share your time and talents, your community benefits...

You are unique. No one in the world has had the exact same experiences you’ve had. No one else can share what those experiences have taught you. There is a need in your community that only you can fill with your special talents and skills. You can make a difference.  

…and when you volunteer, you will also benefit personally. 

RSVP volunteers are not paid, but they benefit in other ways. They meet new friends, learn new skills and stay active - both physically and mentally. Research shows that people who volunteer not only feel healthier, they are healthier, with lower blood pressure, less anxiety and increased energy. Volunteers eat and sleep better, and live longer, more fulfilling lives.

RSVP volunteers are included in formal and informal recognition activities held locally, providing additional opportunities for socializing and meeting new people. RSVP also provides excess liability, accident and automobile insurance for volunteers while on assignment.

 “Volunteers are not paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.”
