Help AARP Foundation win back opportunity for struggling Americans 50 and over.

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
