The Metro Atlanta RSVP program, sponsored by ARC, is currently accepting applications for volunteers to help educate older adults about issues that are important for remaining healthy and independent in their communities. Join a force of talented volunteers, age 55 and over, whose members are utilizing their unique life experiences and skills to share messages with older adults on topics such as how to access needed service; protect themselves from fraud; disaster preparedness and much more. RSVP volunteers play a critical role in providing education and outreach in the community so older adults can make informed choices about available services and programs.
Volunteers serve in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett counties. Training is provided for all volunteers and flexible schedules are available. Volunteers are eligible to receive mileage reimbursement and supplemental insurance.
