AARP New York volunteers are a dynamic group of people using skills they’ve cultivated. They work to improve the lives of fellow New Yorkers — and not just folks age 50 and older. They may attend a hip hop concert and hand out fliers about Medicare. They might lend a hand at food drives around Thanksgiving. Or they may travel to Albany to make sure the governor and state legislators are aware of vital issues, like caregiving support and unaffordable prescription drug prices.
We're looking for talented people who want to make a difference in the lives of others, not only people age 50 and older, but all New Yorkers. Strategic thinkers, planners, leaders and doers are all welcome to learn more about AARP's volunteer positions. We like to think of AARP as a wise friend that helps people live their best lives. As an AARP volunteer, that’s what you will be doing. And volunteering is known to help you stay healthy, confident and purposeful.
We’re flexible. If you still aren’t ready for in-person events, you can volunteer for online events. If you’re more comfortable working behind the scenes at events than public speaking, we’ll put you to work. From stewarding an outdoor food drive to organizing an indoor caregiving conference to sharing information at a local concert, you can be a part of fun events. And you’ll have the support of AARP staff and a mission-driven organization that’s been fighting for the 50+ for decades.
Some volunteers lead discussions with local influencers; others share helpful information among their networks. We can provide opportunities that dovetail with your skills and interests – and how much time you have.
What kind of volunteer are you?
There's something for everyone.
Join us as we work with members, volunteers, the public, and elected officials to bring real possibilities to the lives of people 50 and older in New York. We host monthly Open Houses on Zoom.
