Retired and Senior Volunteer Program at New OpportunitiesRSVP is America’s largest volunteer network of people age 55 and older. RSVP benefits the communities we serve by matching their needs with the knowledge and life experience of our volunteers.

Some of the activities RSVP Volunteers currently perform are:

  • Assist elders with Money Management services;
  • Tutor students (K-3) through the America Reads Program;
  • Assist with soup kitchens, meal delivery and thrift shops;
  • Assist other local non-profit agencies.

Volunteers can choose how and where they want to serve. They determine the amount of time they want to give. In this way, each participant is able to discover the right fit for their volunteer effort.

RSVP volunteers receive a pre-service orientation along with training from the organization where they will serve. Supplemental secondary volunteer liability insurance both personal and automobile is provided. Mileage reimbursement is available for some programs. RSVP also provides recognition.

For more information call RSVP at (203) 575-4220 or email elder [at] newoppinc [dot] org.
