If you're passionate about safety, enjoy helping others and strive to make your community a better place, then AARP Driver Safety would like to meet you. AARP Driver Safety, the nation's first and largest older driver safety initiative, is recruiting unpaid volunteers to instruct, coordinate and promote its educational offerings--including the AARP Smart Driver Course, CarFit program, and We Need to Talk seminar. AARP Driver Safety has a variety of volunteer opportunities available, including: - Instructors: Organize and teach AARP Smart Driver classroom courses at local community centers, libraries, hospitals and senior centers. - Coordinators: Manage AARP Smart Driver Courses in your district, region or state. Recruit and supervise instructors, plan and conduct instructor workshops, and work with local sponsors. - Marketing Specialists: Locate potential classroom host sites, identify publicity or promotion opportunities, and coordinate exhibits at local and statewide events. - Tech Experts: Assist fellow volunteers in utilizing AARP Driver Safety online systems. - We Need to Talk Facilitators: Teach a free seminar designed to help families have conversations with their loved ones about when it's time to cease driving. - CarFit Volunteers: Become a CarFit Technician or CarFit Event Coordinator and help ensure drivers are safely and comfortably "fit" in their vehicle, and in control behind the wheel. In addition to English-speaking volunteers, the initiative has a strong need for Spanish-speaking volunteers. AARP Driver Safety asks that volunteers be able to dedicate at least 10 hours to the program each month, and have Internet access and an email account. Please note that all AARP Driver Safety volunteer positions are unpaid. However, volunteers are reimbursed for approved out-of-pocket expenses, such as mileage, parking and basic supplies.
