RSVP: An experimental organization

Community Mental Health Journal 3(3): 276-278

RSVP: An experimental organization

RSVP is a volunteer organization of psychologists formed to facilitate participation in community activities. Its first venture was in working with 10 tutoring programs in the Boston area. Emphasis in the first year was on discovering areas in which psychologists could be helpful. Projects included group discussion leadership, workshops, and recruitment of tutors and professionals. At present the organization is attempting to broaden the number and kind of activities in which it is engaged and is facing a number of questions relative to future programs. The members consider that RSVP has been a successful experiment.
