You are invited to join a vibrant group of volunteers who work in collaboration with the AARP North Dakota staff to help people 50-plus and their families live life to the fullest.

AARP North Dakota is offering two different volunteer trainings in early December – from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. December 5 in Fargo and December 7 in Bismarck.

If you are interested in advocacy and the work of the state legislature, we’ll be conducting a workshop specifically for legislative volunteers.

If you want to help people avoid getting scammed, we will be training new fraud fighters.

Those attending either training will be reimbursed for travel costs, including meals and mileage. And you would also be reimbursed for travel expenses you incur in your volunteer capacity.

Legislative Volunteer Training
During the 2017 North Dakota Legislative session, AARP North Dakota worked on dozens of bills that affect people 50 and older and their families.

We advocated for tax incentives and fought against cuts to meals on wheels. We advanced protections for people who are reported missing or who become victims of financial exploitation and scams. We pressed lawmakers to enhance support for family caregivers and their loved ones. And we promoted efforts to build more affordable housing and expand dental care access.

In each effort, our advocacy was improved with help from AARP member-volunteers. Legislators want to hear from their constituents. They want to hear from you.

If you’d like to be one of those volunteers or just have an interest in AARP’s legislative agenda, please join us for a workshop designed specifically for legislative volunteers.

Help People Avoid Getting Scammed: Become a Fraud Fighter Volunteer
Do you want to make a difference for others right where you live?

AARP North Dakota is looking for people who are willing to present fraud and scam information to small groups and clubs in communities in your area.

During the training session, you will be provided with valuable, up-to-date resources and information to share with folks, helping to keep them from being scammed.

We invite you to consider this as a way you can make a difference for people in your community.
