AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP
Durham County's Retired and Senior Volunteer Program
Make a Difference in Durham

The Durham County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is a national service program of AmeriCorps Seniors. Our program connects adults ages 55+ with volunteer opportunities that fit their experience, interests, and skillset.

Our volunteers deliver meals to homebound adults, transport lifesaving blood donations, work in community gardens, serve as tax preparers, and more! In return, volunteers receive mileage reimbursement to and from their volunteer site, supplemental volunteer insurance, and annual recognition.
