RSVP and The Volunteer Center has over 900 volunteers at our disposal to mobilize and engage as the needs arise for their services. Last year alone, RSVP/VC volunteers provided 158,796 hours to more than 150 non profit organizations in the Addison and Rutland county region. What does this mean to our communities? It means that RSVP is a catalyst for positive change, with volunteers positively impacting their communities with their dedicated service.
Additionally, RSVP has implemented programming we call "Signature Programs" to address pressing community needs like osteoporosis and child literacy issues through direct service projects designed, launched and managed directly by RSVP/VC. What all of our "Signature Programs" have in common is that they utilize volunteers as the key provider of the service.
