Greater Hartford-Central CT Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)  

Seniors, share your knowledge, talents and skills through meaningful volunteering

Your life will be enhanced along with the lives of those you help. Choose your site from a list of nonprofit agencies, organizations and schools throughout Greater Hartford/Central Connecticut. We offer a variety of activities to choose from — tutoring and mentoring children, adult literacy, home bound meal delivery with Meals on Wheels, transporting seniors to medical appointments, helping travelers at the airport, or helping seniors "age in place."  
Approximately 340 volunteers participated in CRT's Greater Hartford/Central CT RSVP program last year at over 35 different sites. Volunteers receive training and are supported in their volunteer placements to ensure a satisfying experience.
You can learn more about our program in our recent newsletters:
