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.
AARP’s mission is to empower people to choose how they live as they age. The District of Columbia State Office is helping you discover the real possibilities in your life at any age. AARP DC strives to ensure that older adults and their families in the District of Columbia live their best lives. We contribute to, excel in, and deliver on AARP’s mission and purpose. Our work is localized, integrated and accomplished by a dynamic team of volunteers and staff working across all eight wards to support the Age-Friendly DC initiative to make the District a great place for all ages to live, work and play! There are more than 87,000 AARP members in Washington, DC.
AARP is the Nation's largest non-profit, non partisan organization dedicated to empowering people to choose how they live as they age.
