Who We Are and What We Do

RSVP, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, is a national grant-funded program through AmeriCorps Seniors and is sponsored locally by the New Hanover County Senior Resource Center. The program strives to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for adults 55 and over while meeting local needs and responding to priorities of national significance.

RSVP program staff located at the Senior Resource Center conduct one-on-one interviews to match individuals with volunteer opportunities that suit your skills and interests. We are here to find you the right opportunity for your passions, skills, interests, and schedule.

Volunteer training and length of training is specific to the volunteer location(s) and depends on the volunteer position. Excess supplemental accident insurance coverage, recognition, and newsletter communication is provided.

Volunteers can give their time to one partnering location, or many. The choice is yours!
