East Bay Retired and Senior Volunteer Program
The East Bay Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is designed for individuals 55 years and older who want to contribute their skills, talent, and time to impact and improve conditions in their communities. RSVP is a network of community members volunteering in multiple programs and non-profits in the East Bay area. Volunteers are provided educational opportunities through our partnerships for special service positions.
