“Our ‘active’ years were absorbed in the preliminaries of the business of living. Now, freed at last, we face the challenge of making a life rich in expression without friction and without futile desires. This existence today is life itself. …To savor the present, to squeeze out every bit of its flavor, its scent, its quality, to enjoy it is to live it to the full. It's folly to believe that tomorrow will be uniquely different from today. Today is ours! It will be significant as it is purposeful.”
--Ethel Percy Andrus, AARP Founder, 1963

Although the country pauses annually during the middle of April to celebrate National Volunteer Week, at AARP New Hampshire we are grateful for our 200 volunteers EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Simply put, we could not do everything we do without their help and dedication that manifests in ways that bring tangible impact to our 225,000 members throughout the Granite State!

Our volunteers are committed to the work we do for our 50+ population and we can’t thank them enough.

Every day, our volunteers advocate for issues that benefit our members such as lowering the cost of prescription drugs locally and nationally. They run local events for members that help increase awareness of AARP with a fun twist. They help to recruit volunteers so we can expand our offerings throughout the state. They willingly share their time and talent in the community conducting Speakers Bureau presentations. And, most importantly, they embrace the AARP mission to “enhance the quality of life for all as we age.”

Our volunteers tackle society’s challenges, build stronger communities and are a fiery force that transforms the world. We proudly shine a light on all of our volunteers for inspiring us and lending their voices to make a difference across New Hampshire.
