Since 1971, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, one of the largest volunteer efforts in the nation for people 55 and over, has matched older adults who are willing to help with local organizations on the front lines of meeting community needs.  RSVP projects link the skill of the volunteers with the identified needs of the community.  RSVP volunteers do not receive any monetary incentive or stipend, but the RSVP project may reimburse volunteers for certain out-of-pocket costs associated with their service activities.  In addition, RSVP volunteers receive accident, personal liability, and excess automobile insurance as well as community recognition.
