RSVP Clark County

The Volunteer Center programs have  been discontinued, with our focus now concentrating on the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) only. This is a federal grant program mobilzing people 55 and over to serve in areas of critical community need. If you are under 55 years of age please visit our opportunity search page to see what nonprofits in Clark County offer for volunteer positions. 

Volunteer Connections partners with nonprofits and organizations who have many needs from working in the office, to working with clients, to answering phones, to walking dogs, to beautifying a park!  The opportunities are endless!

If you have time to give to your community, Volunteer Connections-RSVP will match your skills, talents and time availability with the right volunteer position at over 100 private and public Non-Profit Organizations. We will sit down and walk you through the volunteer decisions of what, where, and how much time you give. Make a difference in your community and keep your skills active, learn new ones, and make new friends. 

Ready to volunteer or want to schedule an in-person interview with us to help match you with an opportunity that will inspire, engage, and fulfill you?  Give us a call at 360-735-3683 or email to schedule at interview: SEND EMAIL.  To view our Quarterly Newsletter, CLICK HERE.

 

 

Human Services Council Volunteer Connections History

The Volunteer Center (originally called Volunteer Bureau) began at the agency in the early 1970s and was accredited by the National Volunteer Center. Early funding came from United Way; United Way of the Columbia Willamette has continued to provide funds over the last two decades. The Volunteer Center has led community efforts in mentoring (initiating the Mentoring Roundtable) and partnered with Clark County as well as local schools to build service learning opportunities, including Summer of Service projects in the 1990s. The RSVP grant award has been with the Human Services Council since 2005.  RSVP is part of the Corporation for National and Community Service, as one of the Senior Corps programs.  

We have been fortunate in the past to receive grants and awards for our programs through our membership in the Points of Light Foundation, Hands on Network, and the Volunteer Centers of Washington. Additional support for staffing and events comes from the community in the form of donations and sponsorships.

Our Mission is to connect the wisdom, experience, and talents of volunteers with opportunities to enrich the quality of life for themselves and their communities.
