RSVP Volunteer Ambassador

Are you a Connector? If you enjoy living in your community, and you want to help discover and share resources for elders, this might be a great fit for you!

We are looking for a volunteer who is comfortable talking with and meeting people throughout the community, has excellent communications skills, and is willing to spend time each week reading the local news and staying informed about elder services through online research, visits to the local senior center, and more.

Volunteer Ambassadors communicate with RSVP Staff via email, phone or in person visits, helping to inform us about updates or news about services and programs for older adults in your city or town. Commitment is flexible; 1-2 hours/week researching/email and 1 hour/month meeting in person or via Zoom.

Volunteer Board Members, SeniorCare, non-profits & senior centers

Volunteer Board Members commit to one year and have varying responsibilities depending on the nonprofit or senior center where they serve. Board members typically meet monthly and as needed for at least 2 to 4 hours per month to support and advise the organization they serve.

Community Volunteer Leader, American Red Cross

Community Volunteer Leaders can help steer resources to better serve your community through the Red Cross mission. Volunteers work closely with our executive directors and leadership teams to bring Red Cross programs and services as you coordinate with connections you have in the community. Volunteers provide Red Cross updates to local service clubs, participate in local community events, sharing the Red Cross mission and pressing volunteer needs. Volunteers commit to helping 10 to 20 hours each month and work directly with the Northeast Executive Director.

One-Time Events

Share your time for a specific event that is being hosted by SeniorCare, a local non-profit, or local Senior Center.  Help is needed year-round with collecting food at Holiday Food Drives, assisting with holiday meal deliveries, helping at a community holiday meal or outdoor BBQ, and much more.

Commitment is flexible – volunteers sign up when you’re available.

Share Your Talents, Skills, Background & Experience

If you have time available and have a particular interest or skill that you’d like to share, please contact us!

Examples include:

  • Teach a class at a local senior center – topics could include art, music, technology and so much more
  • Provide a brief presentation on a topic you would love to share about either in person or online
  • Assist a local nonprofit with fundraising, research, marketing and more
  • Talk with school children about safety through the Red Cross

The possibilities are endless. We hope to hear from you and will work to help match your skills and interests with the needs in the community!
