The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) offers seniors a variety of community service opportunities.

This National Senior Corps Program offers volunteers age 55 and older the opportunity to use their skills and life experiences to help meet critical needs across St. Tammany Parish. Volunteers are needed for tutoring, helping at the hospital or taking seniors to doctor’s appointments. Volunteers work at their own pace. Some volunteers put in countless hours at a daily volunteer job, while others work special events as their schedule allows.

This past year, our more than 400 RSVP volunteers provided St. Tammany Parish with 38,000+ hours of service.

Our RSVP program is very unique in that we place our volunteers at local non-profits and healthcare facilities across St. Tammany Parish. Serving as a One-Stop Volunteer Site, individuals interested in volunteering can learn about the wide array of volunteer opportunities during their meeting with the RSVP Director.
