Teri Koenig has been a volunteer with RSVP since December 2018. She is trained and certified to teach Stepping On, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain and Living a Healthy Life with Diabetes. Since the pandemic she learned to teach the Living a Healthy Life classes virtually and has co-partnered with new leaders so that they can gain from her experience and knowledge. Teri is a Gerontologist and has been an active member in the community sharing her knowledge and skills. Her kind voice and mannerisms help the newer volunteers feel at ease. Teri has stepped up and helped with many tasks to help our program be successful. She is currently serving on our Advisory Board and brings with her past experiences. Teri has been an exceptional volunteer for RSVP and our team. 

The AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP program pairs thousands of Americans aged 55 and older with organizations making change in communities across the country.

AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers who serve in our RSVP program choose how, where, and when they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week. You can find an opportunity with any of the thousands of organizations we work with that see service as a solution to local, regional, and national challenges. AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers themselves report better health and longevity having served their community.
