Join RSVP Today

You’ve gained a lifetime of experience. Now is the time to put your skills and talents to good use by volunteering through RSVP.

RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over.

Join RSVP, and you join approximately 650 volunteers in Lubbock and nearly 500,000 volunteers across the country who are tackling tough issues.

As we age, staying engaged in work and formal volunteer activities significantly benefits our well-being and that of the organizations in which we serve.

Volunteering also benefits the people served by those organizations as well as the entire community.

Volunteering is a way to:

  • Improve community life
  • Meet community needs
  • Pay it forward
  • Pay it back
  • Give hope
  • Use your mind, body and creativity
  • Continue growing and expanding your skills and talents
  • Give your retirement life a sense of purpose
  • Live beyond yourself

Remember:  when you volunteer, you’re not just helping others, you’re helping yourself.

Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends; it helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.

In just a few short days, we’ll be starting a new year. Get involved, and join RSVP today.

If you would like to know more about Lubbock RSVP, please call the Lubbock RSVP office at 743-7787.

Today is a good day to volunteer!

How do I join RSVP?
