Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Durham County

Logo with Senior Corps RSVP The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Durham County (RSVP) is a National Service Senior Corps project providing personalized volunteer placement and support to meet vital community needs. RSVP has been sponsored by Durham Tech for over 40 years. Volunteering offers the opportunity to meet new people, gain knowledge, stay active and engaged, and know you are making a difference for your community. RSVP volunteers serve with nonprofit and public agencies to help meet critical community needs.

As a National Service organization, RSVP provides volunteer insurance during volunteer duties, as well as transportation reimbursement for travel to and from the volunteer site.

RSVP volunteers choose how and where they want to serve. Volunteers provide hundreds of community services, such as the following:

  • Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) – RSVP’s VITA Program (recruiting now for the 2019, see video below) 
    View VITA Tax Preparation Sites
  • Campus Harvest Food Pantry – Durham Tech
  • Home Meal Delivery – Meals On Wheels

Watch a video of why Tom Fletcher volunteers for VITA tax preparation.
