Join a Local AARP Chapter Today

Posted on 08/08/22

Are you new to your community — or maybe just looking for ways to get more involved? Why not check out an AARP chapter near you?

There are more than 800 of these independently incorporated entities across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and they can be a great way to meet new people, give back and have fun.

Chapters meet monthly for most of the year, and each one has its own personality and focus. Chapter activities can include travel, group meals, cultural outings, and for many, community service is a major priority.

Also, if are looking for a rewarding volunteer position, many chapters have openings for officers, committee members and more.

Check out the AARP Chapter Locator to find a group near you.
