Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

R.S.V.P. volunteers, 55 years of age and above, provide a lifetime of experience to the agencies they serve. Seniors stay active and contribute valuable experience to many local non profits. Special events are offered for our senior volunteers including the annual Recognition Luncheon recognizing their support to Kern County's local agencies.   

Volunteer your time serving the homeless, assisting children in conquering learning difficulties,  finding loving homes for abused/abandoned animals, providing respite opportunities for caregivers and much, much more!
