"After my husband died, I was lonely. Working as an RSVP volunteer gives me purpose in my life again."- Kay, RSVP volunteer and recipient of the 2018 Heart of Courage award
Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
Retired seniors fulfill a crucial need through the Volunteers of America Oklahoma RSVP program which connects volunteers, age 55 and over, with meaningful community service. Volunteers choose to serve at a variety of non-profit agencies matching their interests and skills to serve their local community.
Research shows that Americans over age 50 who volunteer have lower disability issues and high levels of well-being.
Volunteers make a difference!
RSVP volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week.
Volunteers receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where they will serve, and supplemental insurance while on duty.
Areas of service include: assistance to elderly neighbors with meal delivery, transportation and companionship, reading with pre-schoolers, assistance at community food and clothing banks, clerical service to veterans at VA Medical Center and disaster relief.
C.R. volunteers with Extra Eyes, a program of the City of Muskogee to provide additional security.
