These Public Service Announcements (PSAs) are educational messages designed to focus public attention on unique volunteer opportunities for people aged 55 and older.

The National Senior Service Corps launched a new PSA that will challenge them to channel their skills into positive change in their communities through the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). RSVP is celebrating its’ 30th anniversary. The program hopes the "RSVP: It Takes You" PSA will help recruit thousands of new volunteers from among the almost 79 million Baby Boomers beginning to retire. The television PSA, titled "RSVP: It Takes You," takes a high-energy look at how RSVP volunteers are improving their communities. The PSA vignettes profile active RSVP volunteers who talk about how they’re serving in their local communities. The :60-, :30- and:10- second spots were distributed to approximately 1,500 commercial broadcast stations and cable networks. For a copy of the television PSA, contact Jan Newsome 202-606-5000 ext 325, [email protected] or Jackie Aker 202-606-5000 ext 304, [email protected].
