Why do I need to keep track of my volunteer hours?
Your hours COUNT and so we count your hours...we use this information to report to federal, state and local governments and for grants and other funding sources. Locally, by tracking the volunteer hours generated by RSVP volunteers, we know where the community needs are by your time and the dollar equivalent of your volunteer service. Collectively, these hours demonstrate what an asset senior volunteers are to their community. We understand that reporting your volunteer hours may sometime be a nuisance, but it is necessary and tells a meaningful story about all of you.
