RSVP offers adult volunteers aged 55+ quality opportunities to share their skills, interests, and life experiences in response to a wide variety of community needs. Serving both Story (since 1973) and Marshall (since 2003) County, RSVP recruits and places volunteers with over 80 public, non-profit, and health care agencies. For these organizations, RSVP staff process volunteer requests, promote volunteer needs, recruit and refer volunteers, and follow up on volunteer placements. RSVP collaborates with many of these agencies to provide volunteer management support in addressing identified priority community needs (literacy and education, public safety, services to frail elderly and/or low income families, disaster preparedness, etc.). RSVP volunteers cannot replace paid staff, but instead provide valuable support that enhances or supplements the services of an organization.
The Needs are GREAT...The Time is NOW...The Solution is YOU!
