AARP Driver Safety is actively seeking volunteers in Connecticut to instruct their Smart Driver Course.  There is a special need in eastern Connecticut in Windham and New London counties. However, all areas of the state need volunteer instructors.

Through the AARP Smart Driver Course, participants learn proven safety tips, defensive driving strategies, and how to accommodate for common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time as well as a minimum 5% insurance discount every two years for Connecticut residents.

In addition to English-speaking volunteers, we have a strong need for Spanish-speaking volunteers. AARP Driver Safety asks that volunteers be able to teach at least three classes a year and have Internet access and an email account.

In addition to instructors, Driver Safety needs volunteer telephone coordinators and a marketing coordinator in southern Connecticut.

To learn more, please contact Frank Pagerino, State Coordinator at fpagerino@snet.net or visit our website at www.aarp.org/drive.

Although all AARP Driver Safety volunteer positions are unpaid, volunteers are reimbursed for approved out-of-pocket expenses, such as mileage, parking and basic supplies.

Please consider volunteering today!
