RSVP Staff

The national RSVP program, established in 1971 and now one of the largest senior volunteer organizations in the country, engages more than 400,000 people age 55 or older in a diverse range of volunteer activities.

  • Volunteers tutor children, renovate homes, teach English to immigrants, assist victims of natural disaster, provide independent living services, recruit and manage other volunteers and serve their communities in many other ways.
  • RSVP volunteers choose how, where and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week.

In 1973, Rockland Community College received approval to operate a Retired & Senior Volunteer Program, the first community college in the country to sponsor the program.

  • In addition to this sponsorship, RSVP of Rockland is funded by the Corporation for National Community Service, the New York State Office for the Aging and the Rockland County Legislature.
  • RSVP of Rockland currently has more than 500 members actively assisting nonprofit agencies and county government, providing services to more than 100,000 residents.
  • Last year, RSVP of Rockland volunteers logged more than 71,000 hours. With a dollar value of $27.32 per hour for their work, the federal government calculates their contributions have a monetary value of $1,939,720.

Our Mission

The mission of the Rockland County Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is to help address community needs by recruiting volunteers 55 or older to lend their time and expertise in community service to nonprofit agencies and proprietary nursing homes, and in so doing to provide them with meaningful and ongoing volunteer opportunities.
