The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is a group of adults 55 and older that volunteer their time, talents and experience to meet the needs of their community through volunteer work with local non-profit organizations.
RSVP has many wonderful and unique opportunities to offer individuals in our community. All volunteers must be 55 +
Program areas that need YOUR help are:
Bone Builders: Bone Builders is an osteoporosis prevention exercise class held 2 times per week led by seniors FOR seniors. Multiple sites exist in Wayne County. Group leaders receive initial and ongoing training. This is a year round commitment.
Living Healthy: Volunteers pair with another individual in the community to instruct a workshop on Chronic Disease Self-Management. Help others be as healthy as they can be!
Tax Counseling Services: Trained volunteers provide free tax preparation services for low-income seniors, and other low-income families in Wayne County. This volunteer service is seasonal, beginning in January and concluding in April. All volunteer tax preparers receive training provided by the IRS.
Medical Transportation Drivers: These volunteers provide a much needed transportation service to seniors living in Wayne, Ontario, and Seneca Counties needing rides to and from medical appointments.
