National Service Recognition Day

On April 4, 2023, AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors members are honored for all of the volunteer work they do through National Service Recognition Day. Nationwide, thousands of local leaders showed their appreciation by issuing official proclamations, participating in recognition events, and promoting recognition on social media.

Here at VANTAGE Aging, our AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP Program is funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), which leads the initiative for National Service Recognition Day. Volunteers dedicate their time and talents to solve community challenges and serve those around them. Their impact is an essential piece of our community, and we are so grateful to them. For all that our AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers have done and continue to do, we say THANK YOU!

What is the AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP Program?

AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP program is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for adults 55 and over. RSVP allows people 55 and over to stay connected and active within their community by using their skills and experiences to serve others. Vantage Aging helps to pair volunteers with over 100 nonprofit organizations that will be best impacted by their time, talents, knowledge, and experience. Through collaboration with nonprofit organizations in Delaware, Franklin, Geauga, Hamilton, Medina, Summit, and Wayne Counties, volunteers can do their part to make a difference in a community.

There are many different volunteer opportunities available. Learn more about all these volunteer opportunities and more through our website.
