What is the “Art of Volunteering in Retirement?

“The art of successful volunteering in retirement is finding an experience that is fun, social, convenient and meaningful,” says Brandi Morris, RSVP’s program manager. “RSVP specializes in personally helping folks find their niche so they can fully utilize their interests and talents in retirement.”

“RSVP takes an innovative and creative approach to personally matching its volunteers with their ideal opportunities,” Brandi says.
