AARP Idaho is pleased to celebrate National Volunteer Week, an annual opportunity to step back and recognize the hardworking volunteers who dedicate their time, talents and passions to improving every corner of this great state. While it is easy to get caught up in statistics – more than 500 exceptional volunteers, thousands of hours of service – it’s the “good” behind those numbers that is truly awesome.

Now in its fourth year, New Knowledge Adventures (NKA) is a lifelong continuing education program for older adults designed to offer exceptional learning, exploration and fellowship opportunities in a comfortable and non-competitive academic surrounding. It's a great way to learn something new and make friends along they way.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is looking to expand its team of volunteers for the upcoming tax season. Tax-Aide, now in its 51 st year, offers free in-person preparation and assistance to anyone, especially those 50 and older, who can’t afford a tax preparation service. Volunteers make a difference in their communities by assisting many older, lower-income taxpayers, and their families, who might otherwise miss out on the tax credits and deductions they’ve earned.
