RSVP Program

The RSVP 55+ Volunteer Program uses the life experiences, skills and know-how of older Americans to meet the needs of our communities.
 
The Volunteer Center of East Central Wisconsin is a sponsor of the national program volunteer program, RSVP in Outagamie & Calumet Counties. The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is a great way to volunteer and network with other older adults who have an interest in serving our community. RSVP invites adults age 55 and over to use their life experience and their skills to answer the call of their neighbors in need.

Learn More

To get started with RSVP, the RSVP staff will first meet one-on-one with you to determine what opportunities best meet your interests, skills and schedule. Email Carol, RSVP Director, to schedule an appointment & learn more!

Youth Program

At the Volunteer Center, we work with non-profit agencies and other organizations to identify volunteer opportunities appropriate for youth.  We help agencies identify opportunities that are of interest to young people, best use their energy and creativity, and can be scheduled around school activities.

Each year, we also feel the need to express our deepest gratitude to the youth in our communities that spend time giving back and volunteering. We host the Youth Alliance Awards, the only awards program just for young volunteers in our local area. Each nominee is recognized at a program in April at Liberty Hall. For more information about the Youth Alliance Awards, click here.

The Human Race is Saturday, May 6, 2017!

The Human Race is a unique opportunity for individuals, families and businesses to work together to raise money for an organization or cause.

Participants select a nonprofit agency, collect donations for them, then participate on behalf of the organization in a 5k walk, 5k non-competitive run or one-mile walk held at Thrivent Financial on Ballard Rd. in Appleton.

Most organizations are nonprofits… but clubs, schools and church groups are also welcome to participate and hold fundraisers.
