About RSVP of the Flint Hills

Current Staff Board of Directors

RSVP of the Flint Hills, is a community-based program with a dual purpose: to engage persons 55 years of age and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs and to provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of the volunteers. RSVP serves as a one-stop clearinghouse that links volunteers to meaningful community service.

RSVP of the Flint Hills, formerly known as Riley County Retired Senior Volunteer Program, was founded in 1974. The current name reflects changes made to include Geary and Pottawatomie counties and to appeal to the Baby Boomer population. Baby Boomers are the fastest rising age group in the country and will bring new skills and talents to build a stronger community. Over 350 volunteers provide nearly 55,000 hours of service annually. Many volunteer opportunities are available that will appeal to senior citizens as well as those Baby Boomers who are still in the work force.

RSVP volunteers serve through a variety of nonprofit and civic organizations, designated as volunteer stations. Volunteer opportunities are available in many areas including: schools, museums, hospices, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, recreation programs, home delivered meals, and a wide range of other organizations including KidZercise and the Ft. Riley USO Center.

RSVP is funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service, and locally by United Way and the Riley County Council on Aging.
