What is RSVP?
The RSVP, or Retired & Senior Volunteer Program, is a nationwide and federally funded program that matches volunteers aged 55-and-older with meaningful opportunities in their communities. Boulder County CareConnect has been the local RSVP station since 1972. We are here to connect you with opportunities in over 40 Boulder County nonprofits.
7. Is there anything comparable to BCCC in other counties?
We are often told that Boulder County CareConnect is unique and special because we provide several volunteer-powered safety net services under one roof. If you are looking for similar services in other locations we recommend checking in with local senior centers or county area agencies on aging if available. These organizations can often provide information about the services in your area.
