Summer of Service

Are You Up For The Challenge?

For a startling number of older adults, poverty is a fact of life that threatens to put the American Dream out of reach. More than 10 million adults 50 and older live below the poverty line. This summer, AARP Foundation is leading a Summer of Service to Seniors and traveling to Memphis, Denver, Minneapolis - St. Paul and Washington, D.C., to pack 3 million meals for older adults in need.

Join us to pack meals for older adults in need.

Be the Difference in Your Community

Every single day, AARP Foundation’s volunteers fuel our work in communities across the country. Without the millions who donate their time, skills and passion, we wouldn’t have enough capacity to help struggling older adults transform their lives. 

We love our volunteer corps, and we’d be thrilled to add you to their ranks. Whether you pack nutritious meals for food-insecure seniors, tutor underserved children to read at grade level so they can avoid poverty later in life, or help low-income older adults file their taxes, you’ll be making a vital contribution to your community — and you’ll experience the great feeling that comes from helping others.

“I get a sense of enjoyment of being able to sit down and helping them read better. It’s a great feeling when you start and they can hardly pronounce a word, and when you get done and they’re actually reading books.” — Jordan Wexler, Experience Corps volunteer tutor
