What is RSVP at
L.A. Works?

RSVP is a nationally funded program that is a part of AmeriCorps Seniors.  By joining the L.A. Works RSVP program, you’re pitching in with a network of other 55+ volunteers making changes in their communities from coast to coast.  RSVP at L.A. Works is your local chapter for a winning national volunteer league!

L.A. Works is where Angelenos looking to serve come to find volunteer opportunities across all communities. We welcome the largest network of Los Angeles-based nonprofits to come here to use our website and to meet volunteers like you.  Volunteers like yourself get to reap the benefits of having a one-stop shop for different ways to volunteer across a multitude of categories of interest. There is no better example of how L.A. Works works than the RSVP Program!







So, think of RSVP as an exclusive portal on the site that opens only to volunteers 55+.  You'll have access to all the events listed on our website while gaining opportunities where volunteers your age are exclusively sought after!
