AARP Maine Volunteer Opportunities!

Posted on 07/23/19 by Jane Margesson

Interested in sharing your experience and talents as a volunteer?


You have a lifetime of experience to offer. Why not share your talents right here in Maine? Through outreach, advocacy and service, AARP volunteers and staff work together to enhance the quality of life for Mainers of all ages. Whether it is behind the scenes supporting the daily work of AARP Maine or lending a hand directly to others in Maine communities, we offer a range of opportunities! Click here for our brochure: Maine State Volunteer Brochure 2019 !

Local Advocates

Our advocacy program gives you a voice on the issues that matter most to your family, friends and community such as health care, caregiving needs and fair utility costs. Volunteer advocates engage legislators, deliver testimony, and support important state and federal issues that impact the health and financial security of Mainers over 50. Let’s work together to bring positive changes to Maine in communities everywhere. One of our newer volunteer programs is called Recess Regulars - a great way to engage with Maine's Federal Delegation and advocate on the issues you and your family care about.

Community Engagement

Fun with purpose is a theme for our community work around Maine. Community engagement volunteers work together with local residents, community leaders, and organizations to host events (such as our free coffee and on-tap social events), support community projects and share information and resources -- a perfect way to make a difference in towns across Maine!

Speakers Bureau

We are always looking for outgoing volunteers who can represent us around Maine. We’ll work with you and give you the resources you need to give simple presentations to groups and organizations on a variety of topics including Social Security and Medicare, livable communities, fraud protection and more.

Online Advocate

Would you like to stay connected with AARP Maine through email and social media? Join a growing group of Mainers who have become the voice for the 50-plus online! With our brief email alerts, you’ll be in the loop on local events and statewide issues. Liking us on Facebook (facebook.com/aarpmaine) and following us on Twitter (@aarpmaine) are easy ways to stay connected to our local opportunities. Every voice makes a difference on the critical issues we address on behalf of our members and their families.

Behind the Scenes
