The RSVP of Lake County is an organization that matches the skills, talents and experience of adults age 55 and over with important community needed volunteer opportunities. Currently, RSVP of Lake County has over 900 active volunteers serving over 70 non-profits and health care agencies.

The program is funded locally by the Lake County Senior Citizen Services Levy, federally by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), and by the Ohio Department of Aging. RSVP has been sponsored by the Willoughby-Eastlake City School District since its inception.

RSVP is a national program affiliated with the CNCS. Though national in scope, RSVP is a local focus. Here in Lake County, our RSVP office is located in Willoughby – The Willoughby-Eastlake Technical Center of the W-E School District. We place volunteers in non-profit organizations, health care agencies, and community programs from Eastlake to Madison, from Timberlake to Concord – and everywhere in between.

RSVP's of Lake County slogan is "RSVP – Your Invitation to Volunteer". Lake County is blessed with a wealth of older adults who have stories to tell, energies to offer, and skills to pass along. Those stories, energies, and skills are assets that should not, and must not be wasted.


For over 30 years, RSVP of Lake County has provided volunteers ages 55 and older to Lake County non-profit agencies. Specifically, RSVP programs assist people 55 and older utilize their skills and life experiences to address community needs through service in their local communities.

Across the county, the Corporation for National and Community Service's participants in Senior Corps, Americorps, and Learn and Serve America have done tremendous good for the United States. They have improved the lives of millions of our most vulnerable citizens by helping children learn to read, caring for the frail elderly, rebuilding communities struck by disasters, transforming failing schools and revitalizing communities. They have done this both through director service and by mobilizing millions of additional volunteers.
