Retired Senior Volunteer Program

There are 15 Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) projects in Washington State. Members of RSVP are at least 55 years of age; there is no upper age limit. These projects are sponsored by non-profit organizations and local government agencies.

RSVP volunteers serve in schools to increase reading and math comprehension of elementary and high school students; provide instruction and guidance to teen parents; organize neighborhood residents in a wide variety of public safety projects; in cooperation with the State Insurance Commissioner, counsel elders about health insurance and related matters through the Senior Health Insurance Benefit Advisors (SHIBA) program; educate the public concerning methods whereby environmental concerns can be addressed by recycling and the purchase of products that result in less waste of packaging materials.

These are merely a few examples of the valuable community service that is provided by the nearly 16,000 volunteers of RVSP.
