volunteer efforts in the nation. RSVP volunteers choose how
and where they want to serve and how many hours they can serve.
We strive to match their skills and interests with volunteer

1. How do I become an RSVP volunteer?
You can make a difference in the community regardless of
how much time you have to give. RSVP will work one-on-one
with you to ensure that you gain experience in a rewarding
placement. If you are 55 or older and are interested in becoming
a volunteer, please call the RSVP office at (435) 259-1302

2. What benefits do RSVP volunteers receive?
In addition to the benefit of being placed in a volunteer
opportunity that brings great personal satisfaction, RSVP
volunteers know they are helping to improve the quality of
life in the community. Studies show that people who volunteer
are less likely to become ill and to maintain a positive
outlook on life. Other benefits include:
- The opportunity to broaden life experiences and touch the
lives of friends and neighbors in the community.
- Invitation to an annual volunteer recognition dinner.
- RSVP newsletter
- Supplemental accidental personal injury,
personal liability and excess
automobile liability insurance while on assignment - optional
transportation reimbursement for mileage to and from assignments.
3. What do RSVP volunteers do?
RSVP volunteers provide hundreds of community services through
participating stations (non-profit agencies, schools and
government programs). Volunteers may continue in their professional
fields when volunteering or choose an assignment for the
challenge it offers. Whatever a person's skill, experience,
interest or goal, it can be put to good use for the benefit
of the community and the volunteer. Perhaps you are already
volunteering at a local non-profit agency (hospital, school,
library, museum etc). You can sign up with RSVP and continue
with what you are currently doing, and/or choose another
volunteer opportunity or spot project. RSVP volunteers who
may not be as mobile as others and like to knit or crochet
can make lap robes for local nursing homes, newborn baby
caps for Moab Regional Hospital.
