Did you know that we have more volunteers working with AARP in Tennessee than in any state except New York? Wow, this truly is the Volunteer State!
Members and friends are working with us statewide to make our communities more livable for people of all ages, provide resources for folks caring for loved ones and raise awareness about fraud and scams. Below, you’ll find even more ways to help!
Congressional District Leaders
We are looking for folks to form relationships with staff in the district office of members of Congress (MoC), share AARP material when requested, and meet with MoC. Leaders are needed in Congressional Districts 1, 3, 8 and 9. Find your congressman and district here. To apply, send your contact information and resume or experience summary by email to Shelley at email@example.com with CD LEAD in the subject line.
We are looking to add members to our awesome Tax Aide team. If you are interested in helping folks prepare taxes for a few months out of the year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with TAX PREP HELP in the subject line. Volunteers are desperately needed in the Memphis area, but there are needs statewide.
Help with communications and event promotion in your area! Assist us with building relationships with local media and conducting other local outreach to help tell the AARP story. To lend a hand, send an email to Tara at email@example.com with COMMUNICATIONS in the subject line.
Office volunteers support our community work around the state with various administrative and organizational projects at the AARP state office in downtown Nashville on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with OFFICE VOLUNTEER in the subject line.
Driver Safety Program
AARP is looking for dedicated volunteers to be Driver Safety Program instructors. Potential instructors must have completed the new course in 2014, must have Internet service, and an email address. Please contact George Coleman, State Coordinator, at email@example.com if you are interested in learning more about this volunteer opportunity. Tennessee counties where instructors are needed are: Greene, Johnson, Hawkins, Sevier, Anderson, Campbell, Union, Claiborne, Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson, Roan, Washington, Carter, Tipton, Dyer, Weakley, Obion, Putnam, McMinn, Monroe, Bledsoe, Sequatchie, Smith, Dekalb, Macon, Trousdale, Humphreys and Dickson
Volunteer On-boarding and Support
The volunteer support team helps with follow-up of new volunteer recruits, orientation, and the first few volunteer experiences, including office volunteers. We want to get folks oriented and “on the ground” soon after they express an interest in working with us so we don’t lose them to another organization. To help us with volunteer on-boarding, please email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org with VOLUNTEER SUPPORT in the subject line.
All of our volunteer leadership positions are selected by an application and interview process and will be open until filled.
