Making a Positive Difference: Volunteer for AARP

AARP’s strength is its members. Our members daily make a big difference in the lives of all generations of Americans, whether it's fighting to protect Social Security and Medicare from harmful cuts, battling unaffordable utility-rate increases for Florida consumers or working up a sweat improving Florida communities.

That’s a big reason why AARP Florida is always on the lookout for new volunteers.

Volunteers play a huge role in all of AARP’s activities, but there are four ways in particular that you can volunteer to help others through AARP Florida.

You can volunteer as:

  • An AARP Florida advocate. Whether it's organizing local groups to participate in advocacy events around the state; speaking to other organizations about issues like protecting Social Security and Medicare; or by building relationships with legislators and letting them know where AARP members stand on certain issues.
  • An AARP Driver Safety instructor. Americans 50+ learned to drive a long time ago, for the most part. But since then, both traffic laws and automobiles have changed – sometimes, a lot. Volunteer instructors help participants in Driver Safety classes brush up on the latest information about traffic laws, learn key points that help you drive as safely as possible and keep up to speed on automotive technology. Depending on your insurer, you may also earn a discount on your car insurance.
  • An AARP Tax Aide volunteer. The Tax Aide program helps 230,000 Floridians comply with their annual tax-filing obligation. The program is free to those of low and middle income and focuses especially on Floridians 60 and older.
  • Volunteering to “make it better.” Even if you choose not to work in a regularly scheduled volunteer role with AARP, you’ve got lots of other ways to improve the lives of others through AARP.

One way is through Drive to End Hunger, the AARP Foundation’s exciting initiative to reduce hunger among older Americans. Teaming up with four-time Sprint Cup NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, Drive to End Hunger helped raise 4 million meals for older Americans this year.
