AARP Turns 60!
What We Do
What We Fight For
What We Care About
Members and volunteers share how AARP has helped them improve their lives.
From our publications to our YouTube channel to our member events, AARP shares the info that makes life after 50 richer. What does that look like?
On Capitol Hill, in every state capital and in courts throughout the land, we fight for the laws and protections that older Americans want and need.
Our founder Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus’ motto was “To serve, not to be served.” We know that people over 50 want to lend a hand.
Many of our most popular and enduring programs and activities can be traced directly back to the experiences of our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus.
