RSVP – Volunteer draft
Volunteer with RSVP
Who can apply to volunteer for the LIFT CAA Retired and Senior Volunteer Program?
RSVP is open to anyone age 55 and over. We invite you to join our caring team of volunteers and put your experience and passion to work in your community. You can be a part of LIFT CAA RSVP and join hundreds of older adults like yourself who are serving their community. You’ll find it’s a better way to live when you keep on giving.
What are the benefits of volunteering?
It begins with you. Visit new places, make new friends, and stay active and involved. Our volunteers discover what often starts out as a way to “do something” becomes an amazing way to live. Benefits also include supplemental accident and liability insurance coverage, an active membership which includes invitation to our events, access to a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, and ongoing support from our LIFT CAA RSVP staff.
How to Apply
Step 1: Fill out a simple registration form
Once we’ve had an opportunity to review your application, we’ll invite you to come to our office and meet with our volunteer coordinator. We’ve found that taking that extra time at the beginning is a great way to ensure we find volunteer opportunities that will be meaningful and rewarding for you.
Step 2: We’ll meet with you to learn what your interests are.
Tell us a little bit about yourself, your experiences and interests. Your application will help us to better understand what kind of volunteer opportunities will be a great fit for you.
Step 3: We will make recommendations we think are a good match for you.
Now we will be able to give you a list of volunteer opportunities for you to consider. Initially, you may decide to volunteer at several places to learn which ones you feel will allow you make the greatest contribution. How much you volunteer and where is up to you. You will never have to commit beyond what you feel works best for you.
Step 4: We will stay in touch to serve you better.
You have got a friend in LIFT CAA RSVP! We are here to serve you and to help you for the long term. We are not just a sending agency, but an organization that works with older adults to ensure their volunteer experience is always enriching and rewarding.
