*Currently VIRTUAL (a computer is not required*

The AARP DC State Office is currently looking for a variety of volunteers to support older adults as they age!

Ward Liaison: As a Ward Liaison, our most popular and vital volunteer role, you will help raise awareness of the work of AARP while fighting for programs and services upon which many DC residents rely. Things like nutrition access, affordable housing and prescriptions, and funding for social service programs are a few items we are fighting for as we speak.
In this role, you’ll be the representative of your Ward and share the needs of those seniors with our State Director. Additionally, you may be asked to assist with our advocacy priorities, testifying before DC Council, attending community meetings, and disseminating resources in your community. Ward Liaisons become a familiar face in their communities and commit a minimum of 2 hours per month, including one monthly team call.
