The AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP program provides grants to organizations with a dual purpose: to engage Americans 55 years and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs, and to provide a high-quality experience for the volunteers. Since 1977, the City of Corpus Christi has been the local sponsor for RSVP. The RSVP program serves all of Nueces County and currently has over 250 active volunteers.
RSVP staff matches volunteers’ interests and schedules with several opportunities from non-profit agencies called Volunteer Stations that are registered with the RSVP program.
Become an RSVP Volunteer!
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3: (1) you must be at least 55 years of age to enroll, (2) you must complete a monthly time sheet to receive credit for your volunteer service hours, and (3) you must be willing to work without compensation.
Once enrolled, RSVP Volunteers are required to attend orientation, and to serve at least four hours per month at a registered volunteer station in order to remain active in the program.
Volunteers may choose to serve at one or more volunteer stations, may commit to one or more assignments, and may choose the number of hours according to your schedule.
RSVP Volunteers have benefits such as a FREE Supplemental Insurance that covers you while traveling to and from your assignment and while on duty. Also, numerous events are held throughout the year to recognize volunteers for their service.
