The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) has been matching individuals age 55 and above with fulfilling volunteer opportunities in 25 communities across Dane County for more than 50 years. Volunteering brings many benefits including opportunities to meet new friends, to stay active and healthy, and to enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a positive difference in neighbors’ lives.
We invite you to join us.
