RSVP – A Volunteer program for adults 55+

Channeling Talent & Experience

Older adults have a wealth of experience that can be shared in ways that help improve our community. RSVP is a special program designed for adults 55 and older to connect and share their talent and experience through volunteering.

This program is a win-win – it enriches volunteers’ lives by helping them to meet new friends, connect to their community and stay active. Many Vermonters find volunteering especially rewarding after their children have left home or they've retired from work. 

We recruit and mobilize RSVP volunteers to address community needs that align with our Key Strategies. Volunteers choose how, where and how often they want to volunteer. Opportunities are as diverse as our community, including:

  • Mentoring and tutoring children

  • Driving seniors to medical appointments

  • Delivering meals to seniors

  • Supporting healthy aging

Connect with us to find these and other local volunteer opportunities. Our Volunteer Connection staff will help you find the right opportunity – whether it's once a week, once a month or once in a while. To become an RSVP volunteer, please contact Danielle Williams, daniellew@unitedwaynwvt.org, or at (802) 861-7821.
