Harnessing the Power of Volunteerism
Together, we can change the world through volunteering.
Since 1973, RSVP has been the region’s leading volunteer placement agency for adults. There are hundreds of reasons people volunteer -- let us help you find yours!
Every day, countless RSVP volunteers tutor struggling students - in classrooms or virtually, drive homebound seniors to medical appointments, counsel juvenile offenders, present STEM career choices to students, counsel Medicare recipients, help adults improve their literacy skills, mentor at-risk youth, provide counseling help to struggling nonprofits, read to Head Start preschoolers, lead tours at historic sites & museums, deliver meals-on-wheels, staff domestic hotlines, and so much more.
RSVP now serving Delaware County. We’re the same RSVP – just bigger and better!
For Immediate Release: Blue Bell, PA – March 3, 2015. RSVP of Montgomery County has been awarded a grant by the Corporation for National & Community Service to engage volunteers 55 and older in meaningful opportunities that benefit Delaware County residents.
RSVP’s focus will be on community needs such as child and adult literacy, food distribution, and senior services, including companionship and transportation. The organization will seek to continue and enhance existing community volunteer opportunities and partnerships with Delaware County nonprofits and schools.
RSVP has been serving the community for more than 40 years through varied programs supporting our area’s most vulnerable populations, such as disadvantaged preschool children, at-risk youth, the elderly, those with low literacy skills, veterans and retirees, as well as by providing support to area nonprofits. The organization engages some 1,100 volunteers and partners with more than 200 community-based nonprofits.
Members of the Delaware County community, including seniors, recent retirees and corporate employees, are invited to contact RSVP to learn about volunteer possibilities for individuals and groups. Opportunities include virtual tutoring from any computer location to support struggling math students as well as veterans through a workforce development program, an excellent volunteer activity for corporate employees.
