Program of the Month
Skylands RSVP Volunteer Resource Center
Skylands RSVP Volunteer Resource Center is a program of NORWESCAP designed to mobilize the community to help their friends and neighbors through volunteer service. Skylands RSVP provides meaningful opportunities for individuals age 55 and over in five northwest New Jersey counties: Morris, Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon and Passaic. RSVP is a part of Senior Corps, a program of the Corporation for National & Community Service, and is sponsored locally by NORWESCAP.

Skylands RSVP’s volunteer recruitment process is unique among volunteer centers. Most volunteer centers have put all their recruitment efforts into an on-line database, with little or no human contact with the prospective volunteer. While we fully utilize the internet-based recruitment tools available today; we continue to provide an individualized approach to volunteer recruitment and deployment. Every person who contacts us to find a volunteer opportunity is treated as a unique individual, with unique skills and very personal reasons for wanting to volunteer and desires for making a difference. With each new experience, volunteers meet new people and work to solve new problems. Living a satisfying and fulfilling life means helping others, staying involved, giving back to the community and having fun.

Skylands RSVP is in the forefront in New Jersey in creating “signature” programs to tap into the skills, interests and time constraints of the “baby boomers.” These programs include the Volunteer Income Tax Program (VITA), State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), and numerous Evidence Based Health Initiatives. In combination with Telephone Reassurance and Friendly Visiting, these programs allow many local seniors to stay in their home rather than be forced into a Nursing or Senior Care facility. If you or someone you know would like to volunteer for any of the programs mentioned above, or for any other cause within our service area, please contact our staff at 888-387-9830. We strive to find every individual the perfect volunteer position to match their skill set, their availability and their passion.

Don’t have time to volunteer?

Please consider helping with a financial donation! We are always in need of computers and supplies for our tax preparation sites, weights and manuals for our health programs, and even gift cards to recognize the volunteers who went above and beyond in serving their community. To learn more about the Skylands RSVP program, how to get involved, or how to make a donation; please call our staff at 888-387-9830. Skylands RSVP Volunteer Resource Center is the one-stop for all your volunteer needs.
