RSVP – Retired Seniors Volunteer Program
Founder of the Gray Panthers, Maggie Kuhn, once observed, “It is a shame to know all of the answers, when no one bothers to ask you the questions.”
The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) makes sure someone is asking the questions of the numerous older volunteers in our community.
Working with almost 200 nonprofit agencies in Dallas and Collin counties, RSVP is the clearinghouse for people age 55 and over who are looking for volunteer opportunities. Whether it is serving as a tutor, staffing a special event, providing consumer mediation, educating seniors about Medicare fraud, or nurturing a community garden, close to 2,000 RSVP volunteers are utilizing the skills they have developed during a lifetime to make our communities a better place for all — both young and old.
Volunteers may join RSVP as individuals or with a group. In addition to helping area organizations by sharing your talents, RSVP volunteers receive free supplemental accident and personal liability and excess auto liability insurance while volunteering through our program.
