The Senior Corps Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is a nationwide volunteer program that invites adults age 55 & over to use their life experience and skills to answer the call of their community in need. Through volunteerism, these adults engage in meaningful and productive activities that support their neighbors and solve community issues. If you are 55 and older, working, semi-retired or retired, and are looking for ways to stay active and serve your community – then RSVP is for YOU.

Our Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Mercer County connects 400+ Senior Volunteers to 35 different volunteer organizations throughout Mercer County.
