Don’t wait. Sign up today for this amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and volunteer for Life@50+ in the Crescent City – AARP’s premiere national event that showcases the best of how people are redefining life after 50.

The event will be held September 20–22 at the Ernest P. Morial Convention Center. 

Volunteers receive free event registration, a free T-shirt, free parking and a meal voucher for each scheduled shift.

The program for this immensely popular event includes:

  • Engaging educational forums
  • Hundreds of interactive exhibitors
  • Celebrity speakers and much more

“We will need approximately 1,500 volunteers to help out with this event where nearly 25,000 people attend. It’s a wonderful experience and a great opportunity to showcase New Orleans and the Gulf Coast,” said Kathy Burch-Payne, Senior Operations Associate, AARP Louisiana.
This event is high-energy and lots of fun. As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to work at least one shift which is typically four hours during the three-day event.
Volunteer responsibilities may include helping guests navigate the event, walking the floor, answer general information questions, taking tickets and ushering guests.

We’ll assemble our team in August and will notify our volunteers of their shift assignments.

“We are expecting more than 20,000 members, their families and friends to come to New Orleans for the event and we are going to need some help! The event is successful only with the support of volunteers from the Gulf Coast, serving as ambassadors for AARP, and the city of New Orleans. Event volunteers are going to be an important extension of the team, making sure that presentations run smoothly, the exhibit hall is orderly, and that people are generally comfortable with the New Orleans Convention Center. I can’t thank you enough for helping make this a memorable experience for all of our event attendees,” said Jason Weinstein, National Events Director.
