Do you want to make a DIFFERENCE? AARP New Jersey has many opportunities for you to do so. Check out just a few of the opportunities we have. See one you’re interested in? Contact AARPNJ@AARP.ORG / 1-866-542-8165 to get started!

Community Outreach Volunteer: We are recruiting volunteers to outreach to your local area by representing AARP to promote New Jersey Benefit Programs at exhibitor tables, community fairs, and other events in your area. As a volunteer, you will help educate your community about important New Jersey programs that can directly benefit you and your community. We are especially in need of bilingual volunteers.

Speaker’s Bureau: Are you great at speaking in public? Help AARP by giving educational lectures throughout New Jersey to help empower the 50+ community.

Facebook Patrol: Do you use Facebook? If so, have you “liked” us? AARP New Jersey’s Facebook page has over 35,000 fans and counting, and we are looking for a few active Facebook users to join our Facebook Patrol. Post about topics important to people like you, and like and comment on posts from others on the AARP New Jersey Facebook page (www.facebook.com/AARPNJ).

Office Task Force:  Help the AARP New Jersey Office run smoothly by handling day-to-day administrative responsibilities. Tasks include basic administrative tasks such as light computer work, file sorting, resource management, envelope stuffing, and making telephone calls.

Utilities Watchdog: AARP is fighting to save you money on your home utility bills but we need your help. As a volunteer, you will attend public utility and/or legislative hearings, informational briefings from AARP, contact Board of Public Utilities Commissioners, and be kept up-to-date on advocacy events as they come.
