    Volunteer with AARP Utah ─ Check out our on-going programs

    The Driver Safety Program has four-hour classroom sessions in communities year-round, as well as online courses. Visit the AARP Driver Safety Program for a class near you.

    CarFit, a joint program of AARP, AAA, and The American Occupational Therapy Association, gives older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them. A trained professional asks some simple questions; then completes a 12-point CarFit checklist. The entire process takes about 20 minutes. If your group is having an event where you think a CarFit opportunity might work, contact Paulette Welch.

    Tax Aide – From Feb. 1 through April 15, AARP Tax-Aide volunteers prepare federal and state tax returns for middle and low-income taxpayers, with special attention to people 60 and older. For more information about promoting a Tax-Aide site in your community or becoming a local AARP Tax-Aide volunteer in Utah, please email Taxmanutah@msn.com.

    Create the Good – Whether you have five minutes, five hours, or five days, AARP’s Create the Good site also provides opportunities right in your area. Visit Create the Good to learn more about this innovative program..
