About AmeriCorps and RSVP

AmeriCorps and RSVP are national networks of public service programs committed to addressing critical community needs in education, public safety, health and the environment.

Sponsored locally by the United Way of Porter County, AmeriCorps member’s primary duties involve serving schools and nonprofits throughout Lake, Porter, LaPorte, and Marshall Counties in Northwest Indiana.
Older volunteers through the RSVP program match their life experience, skills, and wisdom with the needs of the community, from delivering meals to cuddling babies and serve throughout Lake, LaPorte, Porter and Starke Counties.
