VCTStyle_IMJoin AARP Virginia at one of our many local events

AARP Virginia staff and volunteers work together in bringing you real possibilities to your community. We host informative workshops on how to modify your home for easy living, the ABCs of Aging and how you can make your voice heard in Washington. Our events are for educational purposes and no products are promoted. We also work in partnership with many community organizations to connect you to unique tools and programs to tackle issues that matter most to you and your family. Our events are free unless noted otherwise.
