MCOA believes in a Maine where we can all live healthy, engaged, and secure lives with choices and opportunities as we age in our homes and communities. We know Maine can be a place that embraces and values the vital contributions and energy we have to offer to the next generations, our communities, and our economy as we get better with age.
Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of the largest senior volunteer organizations nationally. RSVP engages adults, 55 years and older, in volunteer service that utilizes their skills, knowledge, and experience to improve the lives of others in their communities. RSVP volunteers help young children enhance literacy skills, tutor elementary age children in math and science, help seniors improve bone density, strength and balance through exercise, helps seniors stay in their own homes through meal delivery, transportation, respite for caregivers and companionship, as well as support local veterans as they access services, undergo rehabilitation and transition back to civilian life. RSVP volunteers say their volunteer service keeps them active and engaged in their communities and also keeps them young.
