At MaineGeneral RSVP our mission is to engage people 55 and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs and to provide a high-quality experience that enriches volunteers’ lives.
RSVP volunteers make a difference in their communities by: volunteering at food banks, food pantries and local Area Agency on Aging Associations’ Nutrition Programs; serving in their local library; mentoring school-age children; and much more. RSVP volunteers give anywhere from a few to several hours of their time and experience. They may be placed with an area non-profit organization, help with event-specific projects or serve in one of MaineGeneral RSVP’s signature programs. These programs are:
Veterans and Military Families Program: Volunteers can choose one of three ways to help veterans and military families: transportation to the VA Hospital; help them sign up for benefits they are eligible for; and train individuals to use a website specifically designed for veterans and families.
Thresholds: A five-step decision making model taught to inmates with less than six months to serve on their sentence in the Kennebec and Somerset County jails as well as the Pre-Release Program in Hallowell.
Bone Builders: An osteoporosis prevention program new to MaineGeneral RSVP this year.
MaineGeneral RSVP offers volunteers many benefits, including: mileage reimbursement; supplemental insurance; recognition; and ongoing support.
