Escambia County Retired and
Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
The Escambia County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is a non-profit organization for older adults who volunteer and make their community a better place to live. The mission of RSVP is to engage persons 55 and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs and to provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of volunteers. Through this mission volunteers can play a vital role and become an integral part of their community.
Besides the rewards that come from volunteer service, RSVP provides its registered volunteers with Liability and Accident Insurance while on volunteer assignment, an annual awards banquet and other volunteer appreciation, and the opportunity to serve on the RSVP Advisory Council or attend free college courses through the Legacy Leadership Institute.
RSVP is part of Senior Corps lead by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and is sponsored by the Area Agency on Aging of the South Alabama Regional Planning Commission.
RSVP lets the volunteer decide the who, what, when, where and how of their volunteering experience. RSVP needs team leaders and team players, those who work independently or within a group, those who like to develop and organize projects and programs, and those with a passion for utilizing the computer. A list of volunteer opportunities can be found here.
