Train to become an AARP MA Speakers Bureau Volunteer!

For over half a century, AARP has been the nation’s leading social change organization defending, representing, and advancing the needs and wants of people 50+ and their families.  One of the many ways our volunteers help us achieve our social mission work is through the AARP Massachusetts Speakers Bureau. 

Through this program, volunteers give 30-60 minute long engaging presentations on a range of topics, including Fraud, Brain Health, Caregiving, and more!  Presentations can be given in-person or online.

Are you a public speaker passionate about educating your community?  Would you like to become one?  Join us for this 2-day virtual training session!  Experienced volunteer presenters will instruct you on facilitation techniques, give insight into our presentations, provide practice time, and more.  Training will take place via Zoom.  You will receive the Zoom link via email closer to the training date.
