Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over. AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers in OCWCOG's RSVP program choose how, where, and how often they want to serve. Volunteers receive supplemental insurance while on duty and may be eligible for a mileage reimbursement to their volunteer site. Volunteer opportunities include food pantries, advocacy, Medicare counseling, money management, meal delivery, reading with youth, tax preparation, cleaners, and more. OCWCOG administers RSVP, in partnership with AmeriCorps Seniors.

AmeriCorps Seniors, the federal agency for volunteering and national service, provides opportunities for Americans to serve their country domestically, address the nation's most pressing challenges, improve lives and communities, and strengthen civic engagement. Each year, the agency invests more than $800 million in grants for local nonprofit, community, tribal, and state organizations; places more than 250,000 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers in intensive service roles; and empowers millions more to serve as long-term, short-term, or one-time volunteers. AmeriCorps Seniors includes three core programs: Foster Grandparents Program, RSVP, and Senior Companions Program.
