Retired & Senior Volunteer Program

The RSVP Volunteer Program recruits Ulster County residents age 55 years or older and assesses and matches their talents, interests, skills and experience to one or more of the member agencies which provide hundreds of volunteer opportunities throughout the community. The RSVP Volunteer Program promotes the idea of engaging seniors as resources in providing a core of volunteers willing and able to tackle the most pressing community problems in the areas of economic development, education, environment, health, human services and safety. An advisory council assists in the overall development of this SUNY Ulster-sponsored program.

Here in Ulster County, Senior Corps volunteers, adults age 55+ are mentoring and tutoring children, supporting the members of the military who are serving our country in combat by sending morale packages and communications to them, working to support the green resource room and other environmental projects, helping frail seniors to stay independent and helping community members fight hunger. The corporation for National and Community Service along with RSVP and the other Senior Corps programs is putting a spot light on senior service. We are celebrating the commitment and contribution made by our 500 Senior Corps volunteers and recognizing their critical impact on addressing tough challenges in Ulster County.
