This is the association's most prestigious volunteer award that recognizes outstanding individuals who are sharing their experience, talents, and skills to enrich the lives of others. It is presented annually to a California volunteer, age 50 or older, that embodies the principles of AARP’s founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, who believed in the power of ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
