As part of Volunteer Arlington’s celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, RSVP Northern Virginia will hold free information sessions on senior volunteering at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Monday, Jan 21, 2019. The sessions will begin at 10 a.m. and run continuously until approximately noon with each session lasting about 45 minutes. The event is free and open to the public.

Washington-Lee is located at 1301 N. Stafford Street, Arlington, VA, 22201. Free parking is available. The school is located less than a half mile from the Virginia Square Metro station. 

 

RSVP offers more than 200 meaningful opportunities that include helping seniors age in place, assisting local food pantries, and teaching ESL to adults.

At this session, you will get to hear from three of RSVP’s partner organizations, REEP-Arlington Education and Employment Program, La Cocina VA and Meals on Wheels of Arlington, who will talk about their programs and volunteer opportunities. The session will conclude with a small service project that will give attendees an opportunity to meet new people and talk with the nonprofits all while giving back.

RSVP volunteers enjoy flexible schedules, free accident and liability insurance while serving, optional mileage and meal reimbursement and are invited to volunteer group projects and social gatherings.
