Volunteering

 

Looking to Get Involved in Your Community?

Ever feel like you want to help your neighbor, community, or some local organization but don’t know quite how to get involved?

To help people of all ages answer the call to serve in their communities, AARP has launched its new Create The Good Web site (www.CreateTheGood.org) to assist Americans in finding service opportunities nationwide, enabling them to make a difference—whether they have five minutes, five hours or five days to devote.

Create the Good offers ideas for self-directed activities and How To videos for simple service projects people can organize on their own, like weatherizing homes, starting healthy walking groups, fighting fraud, prepare for a hurricane and other needs. The site also allows people and organizations to submit ideas and opportunities about how to create the good, email the site to friends, and post it to their social networks.

There are many opportunities already listed throughout Utah. So why not click on www.CreateTheGood.org, type in your zip code, and discover numerous opportunities that may match your interests and availability.

If you are interested in working directly with AARP Utah, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities through which to get involved directly with us!
