Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) at Positive Maturity encourages adults aged 55 and older to become engaged and active within their community through a range of service opportunities. The program matches adults to specific volunteer activities based upon the volunteer’s individual needs and interests.
RSVP volunteers may serve as many hours as they wish in as many areas as they choose:
- Providing respite for caregivers
- Delivering hot meals to homebound adults
- Helping school children with reading skills
- Serving as docents in Birmingham institutions
- Making Blankets of Love for others
By serving their community, seniors find genuine fulfillment and a satisfying sense of accomplishment. In serving others, RSVP volunteers increase their own quality of life.
Established by Congress in 1969, RSVP began as an outgrowth of efforts by private groups and government agencies to create opportunities for engagement, activity, companionship, and growth for older adults. RSVP is one of Senior Corps’ three core programs.
