The RSVP of Central Oklahoma Story

RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) was established in 1971 by Senior Corps, part of the Corporation for National & Community Service. Each RSVP location is a separate nonprofit organization, benefiting from the nationwide effort to inspire older adults to volunteer and give back to their own communities.

For 45 years, RSVP of Central Oklahoma has been connecting older adults with community volunteer opportunities throughout central Oklahoma. Each RSVP volunteer is a Hero of Compassion as they serve by living, loving, and giving for a better community.


RSVP of Central Oklahoma is enriching the lives of older adults by connecting them with meaningful and rewarding community volunteer opportunities


Our vision is for older adults to continue to live a life full of purpose and meaning


RSVP of Central Oklahoma Volunteer and Placement Program

Through our Volunteer Recruitment and Placement Program, we match the skills, talent, and experience of older adults with volunteer opportunities at area nonprofit agencies throughout central Oklahoma.  Our volunteers make our community a better place by delivering meals, tutoring children, mentoring adults, participating in community gardening, sorting donated goods at food pantries, and so much more!  Our volunteers are true Heroes of Compassion.
