Volunteer Health Coaches Wanted!


East Bay Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is searching for volunteer coaches interested in promoting healthy lifestyle choices for seniors, age 55 or older. Our workshops, “Healthy Eating for Successful Living in Older Adults” and “A Matter of Balance”, are nationally evidence-based programs proven to educate and empower aging communities. We need your help to facilitate workshops with our team so we can help our senior community members live at home longer. These workshops focus on prevention as a powerful tool to living longer.

What will you do? Lead workshops of small groups of community members (8-14 individuals) with one of our team members, either a trained staff member who is an experienced master trainer or an experienced coach.

How will you do it? We provide training sessions for our coaches so they may review the material with someone from our team, including tips about facilitating workshops.

When and where are these workshops? They are in your community! East Providence, Barrington, Warren, Bristol, Tiverton, Portsmouth, Middletown and Newport. We schedule workshops with local community organizations, housing sites and senior centers to be accessible to the community members in need.

How can I get involved? Call the Office of Volunteer Services with East Bay Community Action Program at 401-435-7876 or email us at
