An Invitation to Serve

COAD became the sponsoring agency for the RSVP program in Athens and Hocking Counties starting September 1, 2009. Together with RSVP in Gallia, Jackson and Vinton Counties and its other senior programs, RSVP provides a wide range of possible volunteering options. RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers. RSVP matches the personal interests and skills of older Americans (55 and older) with opportunities to help solve community problems. RSVP volunteers choose how and where they want to serve – from a few hours each month to over 40 hours a week. RSVP makes it easy for older adults to find the types of volunteer service opportunities that appeal to them.

RSVP volunteers provide hundreds of community services. They tutor children in reading and math,   help get children immunized, model parenting skills to teen parents, participate in neighborhood watch programs, plan community gardens, deliver meals, help with cultural arts programs, offer disaster relief to victims of natural disasters, and help community organizations operate more efficiently.

RSVP is provided in numerous counties. Find your county below to get more information:
