Aroostook RSVP's mission is to meet community needs through rewarding volunteer opportunities for individuals over 55 years old.
The mission of the Aroostook Agency on Aging is improving the quality of life and promoting the well-being of older people in our communities.
Aroostook RSVP is sponsored by the Aroostook Agency on Aging, the Corporation for National and Community Service, the United Way of Aroostook and many local businesses. Aroostook RSVP was initiated in 1974 and has partnered with over 100 nonprofit agencies and public organizations throughout Aroostook County to place volunteers, who are 55 and older, in over 160 rewarding and fulfilling volunteer service opportunities. Over fifty percent of Aroostook RSVP volunteers are involved in assignments that are measured to meet these critical local needs.
RSVP is a national program founded by federal legislation in 1972 and funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service. Each RSVP program in the country (there are more than 750) is operated by a local sponsor. The Aroostook Agency on Aging has been the sponsor for RSVP in Aroostook County since the program began in 1974. The Agency on Aging is a private, non-profit corporation owned by the older citizens of Aroostook County.
