Senior volunteer group seeks school volunteers

By on November 12, 2010

ELBURN, SG—The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) works with volunteers who are at least 55 and have a lifetime of experience and knowledge to share. Members of RSVP are entitled to the following benefits: Excess liability insurance, reimbursement for mileage and meals where applicable, and annual recognition events.

Recently, RSVP began partnering with Kaneland John Stewart Elementary School and Kaneland Harter Middle School. The goal of the partnership is to recruit individuals willing to work with students in carpentry, electrical, drafting, help in the library, and to share specific skills. Volunteers also are needed to work with K-5 students on reading, assist with student homework and provide teacher assistance.

For more information about becoming an school volunteer for RSVP, call Debbie Danitz, RSVP program director, 1-800-339-3200 or (815) 344-3555.
