What is RSVP? 

Since 1971, RSVP has been one of the largest volunteer efforts in the nation for people 55 and over. A program of AmeriCorps Seniors, RSVP matches older adults who are willing to help with local organizations on the front lines of meeting community needs. Spark the Change Colorado powers two AmeriCorps Seniors programs across the state: RSVP and The Senior Companion Program. Food insecurity is the focus area of service in the seven RSVP counties.
