Center for Community Action is the sponser agency for the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Blair and Huntingdon Counties. RSVP is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over. Through RSVP, older adults use the skills and talents you’ve learned over their lifetime and have opportunities to develop new ones while serving in a variety of volunteer activities within their community.
Becoming an RSVP Volunteer is a simple process. RSVP volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve. There are many nonprofit organizations that partner with RSVP to provide volunteer opportunities including Huntingdon Meals on Wheels, Area Agency on Aging, and the VA Medical Center, just to name a few.
Volunteers receive pre-service orientation and training from the organization where they will serve. They do not receive monetary incentives but do receive benefits such as 3 types of supplemental insurance (accident, automobile liability and person liability) while on duty, inclusion in recognition events and mileage reimbursement as the budget permits.
Call Center for Community Action at 1-800-323-9997 and ask for Dorcey to find out more.
Funding for RSVP is provided through the Corporation for National and Community Service.
