If you had the chance to help a neighbor, solve a community problem or advocate for a cause you care about, would you do it?
Our members tell us that they want to make a difference, and AARP MD will showcase opportunities here for you to get connected to opportunity that make your feel great — either through AARP MD or through a community partner!
Please take a look at the volunteer opportunities in Maryland below, which are updated regularly. We hope to hear from you!

Are you interested in helping others understand the impact of the Affordable Care Act on individuals and families? On September 17, 2013, AARP Maryland will host an ACA Ambassador Training workshop for those interested in learning more about this landmark legislation and how it is being enacted in Maryland. Participants will then have the opportunity to teach Marylanders what their health insurance options are, and how to take advantage of new benefits.
