  About Monadnock RSVP
Common Good RSVP Volunteer giving back
Monadnock RSVP volunteers are a part of a national movement of like-minded people who give back to their communities—and have been since 1971! Today, nearly 400,000 volunteers serve more than 60,000 public and private community agencies across the United States.

The RSVP program is part of the Senior Service Corps and is operated under the direction of the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency.
America Reads
If you can commit at least one hour a week, you can help a child who’s falling behind in reading. Parents, students, seniors, business people — anyone willing to give time to read to a child, and to listen to a child read can be a tutor. 
America Reads
  Our America Reads program in the Monadnock Area will match you with a child in your community to read with them at their school. You will receive training, materials and guidance to make your tutoring experience both rewarding and effective.

MHere in the Monadnock Region many elderly people with long-term health needs struggle daily to maintain their independence. They are our neighbors: our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends.
Volunteer Benefits
But all too often, their simple needs are not met, and the ability to stay in their own homes is jeopardized. While some have networks of people from which they can receive help, others do not and cannot afford to pay for services, or services may not exist in an area in which they live.

Focus Areas
The Serve America Act requires RSVP to narrow their volunteer focus to the following six areas of service in 2014 and beyond:
Pallets & Skids
Economic Opportunity: Provide support and/or facilitate access to services and resources that contribute to the improved economic well-being and security of our community.

Healthy Futures:
Meet the health needs in our community including access to care, aging in place and addressing childhood obesity and hunger.

Education: Support or facilitate access to services and resources that contribute to improved educational outcomes for children.

Environmental Stewardship: Direct services that contribute to increased energy and water efficiency, renewable energy use, or improving at-risk ecosystems, and support increased citizen behavioral change leading to increased efficiency, renewable energy use, and ecosystem improvements.

Disaster Services: Help individuals and communities prepare, respond, recover, and mitigate disasters and increase community resiliency.

Veterans and Military Families:
Veterans and military family members share a common bond and culture that is unique. RSVP is currently seeking volunteers, age 55 and over, who have served in the U.S. Armed Services to help fellow veterans who are experiencing a variety of challenges with maintaining their quality of life and independence in their homes by providing companionship and assistance with non-medical tasks of daily living through RSVP’s Neighbors in Deed program.
