“Volunteerism is clearly a new way of looking at retirement for older Americans. Many are finding that they want to remain active and involved and that volunteerism fulfills this need and the desire to help others,” said David Just, State President. “Through this recognition, AARP encourages individuals to use their skills and assistance as a way to remain vital as well as make a difference in their community.”

The screening of nominees will be performed by AARP Colorado and involves a range of criteria, including positive impact on the lives of individuals age 50 or older, improvement of the community in or for which the work was performed, and serving as an inspiration to others to volunteer. The award recipient will be announced on or around September 1, 2012.
