Nevada County Volunteer Connection

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Nevada County (RSVP), a program of Agency on Aging/Area 4, stopped serving Nevada County effective December 31, 2017.  This program connected over 400 retired and senior Nevada County volunteers who dedicated nearly 60,000 volunteer hours with local non-profits, government and small business annually.

In an effort to keep this important resource in our community, Nevada County is pleased to announce that we are looking to re-boot and expand this program to one that would serve all ages, and continue to serve a variety of local non-profits and government agencies.  Currently, Nevada County is seeking Letters of Interest from the community to manage this program.

The County invites interested parties to submit Letters of Interest (LOI) for consideration to maintain a volunteer data base and match volunteers with community agencies. Please see the Nevada County Purchasing Department bid postings page, or call Mike Dent, Director of Social Services, at (530) 265-1410 or Tamaran Cook, Adult Services Program Manager, at (530) 265-7160.  LOIs are due by 5:00 p.m.Friday, February 23rd.
