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!
