2.  Come to an RSVP Volunteer Orientation.  This is where you will learn about RSVP and the benefits of becoming an RSVP volunteer.  You can also visit with RSVP staff about your preferences and learn what opportunities best fit your interests, skills, and schedule.  (See the News and Publication tab...scroll down to the Calendar of Events to see when the next RSVP Volunteer Orientation is scheduled).

3.  Let RSVP staff support you and get you plugged in to the best volunteer opportunity for you.  

4.  Experience the rewards of sharing your time and talents to make a difference in the community and enjoy the benefit of ongoing support from RSVP staff.  Welcome!!
