RSVP–Lead with experience
The mission of the RSVP – Lead with Experience is to provide a variety of opportunities for persons age 55 and older to participate more fully in the life of the community through significant volunteer service. RSVP is a service of Blount, Jefferson, Shelby and Walker counties.
Studies have show that the act of volunteering is beneficial to your health and overall well-being. As adults age, retire and begin to slow, it’s important to participate in opportunities that promote physical activity, socialization and a sense of belonging. RSVP volunteers report an overall improvement in their health and mental outlook. They enjoy having purpose, socialization and knowing they are making a difference. The benefits are endless!
