Volunteer

Agency on Aging \ Area 4 encourages volunteerism for people of all ages. Most of the programs funded by AAA4 rely on volunteers. Feel free to contact any of those programs directly to ask about volunteering.

Older adults looking for a wide variety of volunteer opportunities may contact the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), a federal program that matches older adults with appropriate local agencies.

RSVP of Nevada County | Sacramento County RSVP Office | RSVP of Yolo County

If your county does not have an RSVP office, contact your local Senior Information & Assistance provider for more suggestions.
