Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

RSVP engages people 55 and older in meaningful volunteer roles that utilize their skills and life experiences to make a difference in the lives of children, seniors and veterans in communities across Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock and Washington counties.

RSVP volunteers help preschool children learn to read and build literacy skills by exploring the wonder and wisdom of books through our Let’s Read! Let’s Grow! program. 

RSVP volunteers help veterans by volunteering under one of our partnerships with the Maine Veterans’ Homes and VA Healthcare’s Bangor Area Community Based Outpatient Clinic.

RSVP volunteers helps seniors across eastern Maine by volunteering to lead exercise classes in one of our Bone Builders groups or by volunteering under one of our partnerships with agencies supporting independent living, respite, and food security.

RSVP staff work with each person to find the opportunity that best suits each individual’s lifestyle, talents and interests. Volunteer roles vary from as little as an hour or two monthly to as much as several hours weekly. Our goal is to find the perfect fit for you.
