Interested in giving back to the community or simply want to make a difference? RSVP may be a perfect fit! Our volunteers determine exactly when, where, how often, how long, and in which area they offer their service!
Northwest Iowa RSVP engages people 55+ with meaningful community involvement. Iowa Lakes Community College has been the local sponsor for this federally funded, Senior Corps program since 1977 and RSVP has an office staffed by a county coordinator on each of the five Iowa Lakes campuses.
RSVP recruits volunteers for placement with non-profit, public service, and proprietary health organizations as well as in elementary schools in Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, Kossuth and Palo Alto counties. RSVP partners directly with over 125 volunteer host sites in the five-county region and maintain lists for the volunteer opportunities available in each county. Our goal is to match your experience, skills and interests with community service projects.
