“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.

AARP State Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Nominee must be 50 years or older
  • The achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must have been performed on a volunteer basis, without pay
  • AARP membership
  • The achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must reflect AARP’s vision and mission
  • Couples or partners who perform service together are also eligible; however, teams are not eligible

Please contact Jeremiah Mora at jmora@aarp.org for further information and a nomination form. The application deadline is June 1, 2012.

The AARP State Andrus Award for Community Service is an annual awards program developed to honor individuals whose service is a unique and valuable contribution to society. Last year, AARP recognized 52 outstanding individuals from around the country.
