Melissa Bland, RSVP Director

Central Kentucky Community Action Council is proud to be the regional affiliate for one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program.

Best known as RSVP, our volunteers continue to be a lifeline to non-profit organizations, public agencies, and faith-based group, all of which rely on their support to meet the rising demand for services.

RSVP volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve. Commitment hours can range anywhere from a few hours per month to almost full time, though the average commitment is four hours per week.

RSVP Volunteer Requirements

The only requirements are that all volunteers must be at least 55 years old and willing to serve in Hardin or Nelson County.

RSVP Volunteer Benefits

• RSVP volunteers will receive monthly mileage reimbursement to and from their work station. The current monthly maximum is $60 per month.

• RSVP volunteers will receive insurance coverage to and from their workstation and while at their work station.

• Transportation to and from the workstation can be arranged and paid for any RSVP volunteer that does not drive.

• All volunteers will be invited to an annual appreciation luncheon where they can win door prizes!
