About the Program

Gray Panthers founder 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” by serving as a clearinghouse for volunteer opportunities for older adults. Our more than 500 RSVP volunteers have skills and wisdom acquired over their lifetimes. Not only do nonprofit agencies benefit from the valuable service of experienced volunteers; research suggests that older adults enjoy physical and mental health benefits through volunteering.

Volunteers may sign up individually or as a group. RSVP volunteers receive free supplemental accident and personal liability and excess auto liability insurance.

Elise's Story

I started volunteering with the White Rock Center of Hope in June of 2014 through the RSVP program at The Senior Source. Since that time, I not only have volunteered with the White Rock Center of Hope but also spent two years tutoring kindergartners with S. S. Connor Elementary School in my neighborhood.

The most rewarding part of volunteering is helping organizations that help those in need.
