Volunteer Opportunities

What is a "Volunteer Station"?

A volunteer station refers to any organization or agency that has a formal, written agreement with RSVP of Spokane County to work with RSVP members. A volunteer station may be a public agency, secular or faith-based private nonprofit organization, or proprietary healthcare organization.

Each station has a volunteer supervisor who acts as the primary contact person for that station. Along with other responsibilities to RSVP, volunteer stations agree to provide a safe environment, training, supervision, and support for RSVP members.

Note: in the event we do not have a partner organization that best fits your interests, RSVP will make every effort to locate a suitable volunteer position for you, even if it is not with an organization we partner with. Our ultimate goal is to match you with the right volunteer opportunity for you, even if it's not with us.
