Volunteer - It's the experience of a Lifetime    

RSVP offers meaningful, exciting opportunities for individuals age 55 and over to give back to the community and to help neighbors in need.

Our volunteers share their lifetime experience and skills on behalf of hundreds of worthy organizations including schools, hospitals, meals on wheels, health insurance counseling and tax assistance.

RSVP places over 1200 volunteers throughout Westmoreland County enabling them to serve their community with fulfilling work that matches their personal interests and available hours.   RSVP is a program of the Senior Corps, which is a network of programs that help older Americans to find opportunities to address community needs through service. Locally, the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program of Westmoreland County is sponsored by Westmoreland County Community College, Youngwood PA.  

How does RSVP work?

RSVP staff interviews individuals interested in volunteering to find the work that best matches their interests, skills, and favorite activities. RSVP seeks to provide the most meaningful, rewarding, and varied volunteer opportunities possible. 

There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities available to choose from as well as, time commitments. They range from weekly or monthly assignments, working with agencies on specific projects to occasionally working with a program on a special project. There is no time requirement to volunteer through RSVP.
