What is the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)?

If you are 55 and older and enjoy serving as a volunteer, join us! RSVP volunteers participate and contribute to the value of nonprofits in our community. Have time to spare? RSVP of Champaign, Douglas and Piatt Counties/AmeriCorps Senior Volunteers can put you to work immediately! We are a trusted link to local nonprofits. Our next volunteer orientation is June 24.

Please contact Vicky Welser at or 217-359-6500 for more information.

The Stevick Senior Center has relocated and is open again for senior-focused activities including yoga, book groups, euchre and more. Call for a list of activities.
