What do fun and fulfillment mean at AARP?

AARP offers a variety of programs — Movies for Grownups, Happy Hours, friendly phone calls and our Wish of a Lifetime program — to help people over 50 connect with others, build new friendships, and enjoy active and fulfilling social lives.

What do volunteers do to encourage fun and fulfillment?

Volunteers enjoy calling isolated seniors, organizing happy hours, helping at local movie screenings or finding ways to make a vulnerable adult’s wish come true.

Volunteer Roles

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have no in-person volunteer opportunities available at this time.  Please  explore these virtual opportunities to make a difference and volunteer safely from home.
