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 Central Connecticut. We offer a variety of activities to choose from — tutoring and mentoring children, transporting seniors to medical appointments, helping travelers at the airport, working with families in need or helping seniors “age in place”. 

Over 325 volunteers participated in CRT's Greater Hartford 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:


Call us to learn how you can get involved and volunteer in your community.
