Your RSVP Northern Virginia team visited Capitol Hill, Monday, July 16, 2018,  to attend a reception hosted by Senior Corps which included RSVP managers and support staff from across the country.  Shown in the photo above are, from left,  RSVP Northern Virginia program manager Janet Davison and RSVP NOVA volunteer specialist Carly Hubicki.  The event offered us a great opportunity to exchange ideas with other RSVP leaders. Senior Corps is holding its annual convention  in Crystal City this week.   (please see more below)

Two congressmen and the leaders of Senior Corps and The Corporation for National and Community Service spoke about the importance of senior volunteerism during the gathering. RSVP is one of several programs run by Senior Corps. Senior Corps is part of the The Corporation for National and Community Service.
