You have experience . . . a lifetime of it.
Now put it to use in making your community a better place to live and work.
Become a volunteer through the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program!

In 2016, RSVP provided over 29,500 hours of volunteer service in Kitsap County. Serving through non-profit, private and public community organizations, volunteer opportunities are available for your specific skills and interests. Last year, RSVP volunteers strengthened the community by helping us staff our Focus Areas:

  • Healthy Futures
  • Capacity Building
  • Veterans and Military Families
  • Education
  • Economic Opportunity

And that was just the start! By staying active in the community, you become a part of the solution to community problems!

Who can be a RSVP volunteer?

Anyone over the age of 55 who has a few hours a week to give, and enjoys working with others to strengthen their community! As you look over the list of volunteer opportunities, think of how you can make a difference in someone’s life. If you are interested in volunteering, we can help you find a position that will fit your skills and interests.

Seniors/Adults with Disabilities: By providing essential transportation for adults isolated by health or other circumstances, you provide much needed human contact, socialization, conversation and friendship.

Medical: Hospitals and health centers offer a variety of ways to volunteer. You can help out in the gift shop, be a greeter, a patient liaison or monitor, or a variety of other assistive tasks.

Clerical/Office Assistance: Many organizations need a little extra help in the office. You could answer phones, greet visitors; help with the filing, or providing typing and computer skills.
