Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
Being retired doesn’t have to be the end of a career of service and love to the community you once served.
Community members over the age of 55 are invited to become Retired Senior Volunteers to be placed in worthwhile activities in public and private non-profit agencies throughout the Fall River and Taunton areas. On a day-to-day basis senior volunteers continue to address the needs of their community.
Eligibility: Must be age 55 or older.
Documentation Needed: Photo ID
Application Process: Interested parties must come to the Fall River office and fill out an application. We then match the skills and interest of the volunteer against a list of community needs and assign the volunteer to where he or she is needed the most.
Criteria for Selection: Anyone 55 years of age or older may apply.
* All volunteers are reimbursed for mileage to and from volunteer site (.22/mile) and some sites provide meals.
* Volunteers may be covered by supplemental Accident & Liability Insurance.
* An Annual Recognition Brunch is held every June at a local restaurant to honor all volunteers.
