BENEFITS OF BECOMING A HIGH COUNTRY RSVP VOLUNTEER
High Country RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) has been serving Garfield County residents since 1973 by connecting seniors with volunteer opportunities. RSVP’s mission is to enrich the lives of men and women age 55 and older through meaningful volunteer opportunities that use their skills, abilities, and life experiences in service to their communities.
Some of the benefits of being an RSVP volunteer are:
RSVP provides free excess liability insurance to our volunteers while they are volunteering.
RSVP volunteers are given the opportunity to share and interact with other volunteers age 55 and older throughout Garfield County.
Volunteers are given the opportunity to work with a professional Volunteer Manager who will explore with the volunteer various opportunities and provide follow up and support as needed.
Volunteers enjoy an annual Volunteer Appreciation Banquet and other recognition events.
RSVP volunteers have the opportunity to tell the story of today’s seniors in a way that clearly shows their contributions to the health and welfare of their communities.
By enrolling with RSVP, volunteers are joining a national organization, Senior Corps, which celebrates the volunteer service of seniors throughout the nation. Please consider joining RSVP as we connect and contribute together! Call Elisabeth Worrell, RSVP’s Volunteer Manager today!
