Meet The RSVP-Northern Virginia Team
Volunteers 55+ Impacting Their Communities
RSVP (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program) is part of AmeriCorps Seniors, which focuses on making public service a central part of the American experience.
Here at RSVP, we connect volunteers age 55 and over to non-profits across the community. RSVP serves as a gathering place for older adults to socialize, participate in group service projects, and work toward the common goal of making Northern Virginia stronger, more resilient, and empowered.
