AARP Members: Share Your Volunteer Story for a Chance to Win!

Fifty years ago, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus founded AARP because she was inspired to help others and change the world. AARP continues her work helping all Americans get the most out of life and give back all they have to offer

Here in New York, AARP works with thousands of volunteers to advocate, educate, and deliver community programs that help families live their lives with good health and financial security.
Whether it was 50 years ago or today, the story of AARP is the story of all people who are inspired to make a difference in their communities. That is why volunteerism is such an important part of our work.
