Hear from potential new volunteers about their interests, see how adults have found rewarding ways to share their skills and know they're making an impact in our community. We'll talk about how RSVP matches folks with rewarding volunteer positions according to their interests and community needs.

Learn about some of the additional benefits of volunteering through RSVP, such as Volunteer Recognition and the supplemental insurance coverage, and describe the communication (such as reporting volunteer hours) RSVP and volunteers have to support each other.

RSVP orientation meetings are held monthly at the Sanford Center for Aging on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno. See our calendar of upcoming orientation dates. Free, accessible parking is available on site. For more information, contact the RSVP office at (775) 784-1807 or email
