Volunteer with the
AARP Driver Safety Program

As a volunteer you can contribute to the well-being of the community and learn new skills.

For great volunteering ideas and socialize in a fun environment, look no further than the AARP Driver Safety Program!

At the local level, the Driver Safety Program is one of the best examples of a hands-on community service. The program is taught and administered by a nationwide network of volunteers trained by AARP. All over the country, people just like you are helping their communities by sharing information about safe strategies for managing today's increasingly challenging driving environment.

With your help, we can make the AARP Driver Safety Program available to all who want to maintain their driving skills and extend their mobility.

Each year, Driver Safety program volunteers teach nearly 500,000 course participants valuable safety tips and enable them to refresh their skills.

What You Gain by Becoming a Volunteer

As a volunteer, you receive many things, including:

  • Knowledge that you're contributing to the health, safety, and well-being of yourself and others
  • Increased self-esteem by giving back to your community and keeping the roads safe for all
  • The appreciation of the people you help
  • The opportunity to learn new skills
  • A new social network of Driver Safety participants and other volunteers

Ways to Make a Difference

More than 9,000 volunteers nationwide deliver, manage, and promote the Driver Safety Program at the local level. Some of the many positions available are volunteer instructors, who teach the course; volunteer coordinators, who manage the Driver Safety program in specific locations; and volunteer marketing specialists, who promote the program and coordinate activities.

What Others Are Saying
