RSVP Seminar on Senior Volunteerism
RSVP Northern Virginia will hold a seminar on senior volunteerism, Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 3:30 p.m., at the Beatley Central Library in Alexandria. The one-hour event is free and open to the public.
RSVP, the region’s largest volunteer network for people 55-years-old and better, provides individualized support to seniors who are seeking their ideal service opportunities in and around Fairfax County, Arlington County and the City of Alexandria.
The library is located at 5005 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22304. Free parking is available.
RSVP offers more than 200 meaningful opportunities that include helping seniors age in place, providing services to the homeless, and helping prepare communities for disasters. RSVP also recruits volunteers for various community events including for the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics. Several of RSVP’s nonprofit partners are based in the Alexandria Area including New Hope Housing, United Community Ministries, and River Farm (the American Horticultural Society’s headquarters).
RSVP volunteers enjoy flexible schedules, free accident and liability insurance while serving, optional mileage and meal reimbursements and are invited to volunteer group service projects and social gatherings.
