RSVP volunteering opportunities

Below are current volunteer opportunities available through the Retired &?Senior Volunteer Program in Woodburn.

RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over. With RSVP, volunteers choose how, where and when they want to serve. RSVP volunteers receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where they serve and supplemental insurance while on duty.

The Marion County RSVP has been sponsored by the city of Woodburn since 1973. RSVP now has more than 50 placement sites throughout the county.
