About AmeriCorps-Seniors RSVP

Our goal is to help link adults age 55 and older who wish to give their time and service to organizations and institutions that depend on civic engagement to meet the needs of our Heart of Texas region. Utilizing a generation of experience, AmeriCorps Seniors-RSVP works  to match citizens with every walk of volunteer service. Members can choose from a vast listing of projects where they can share a talent, learn new skills, meet others and assist people and agencies in need.

Our Mission

Funded by the national agency, AmeriCorps, The Texas Department on Health and Human Services, and locally sponsored by McLennan Community College, the mission of AmeriCorps Seniors-RSVP is to support people and organizations using citizen volunteer service as a strategy to meet critical national responsibility and community needs and to strengthen the ties that bind us together as a nation.

About Our Program

AmeriCorps Seniors-RSVP supports volunteers and organizations through volunteer recruitment, recognition and retention activities as well as providing free co-insurance to the volunteers and the programs they serve. Volunteer management trainings, community wide events and outreach are also provided regularly. Technical support and training, program evaluation and assistance, senior advocacy, volunteer service tracking and media relations are made available to the members and agency volunteer sites.
