Our advocacy program gives you a voice on the issues that matter most to your family, friends and community such as health care, caregiving needs and fair utility costs. Volunteer advocates engage legislators, deliver testimony, and support important state and federal issues that impact the health and financial security of Mainers over 50. Let’s work together to bring positive changes to Maine in communities everywhere.
Each week during the legislative session, advocates can join “Tuesdays at the State House” (TASH) for updates and tips on being an effective advocate. Our advocacy volunteers represent AARP at local events; raise awareness about key issues affecting older Mainers, such as prescription drug prices, financial security and health care; and coordinate community conversations among voters and political candidates. It's a rewarding and important role and we hope you will join us as we work together on issues of importance to older Mainers in 2024.
One of our newer volunteer programs is called Recess Regulars - a great way to engage with Maine's Federal Delegation and advocate on the issues you and your family care about.
Fun with purpose is a theme for our community work around Maine. Community engagement volunteers work together with local residents, community leaders, and organizations to host events (such as our free coffee and on-tap social events), support community projects and share information and resources -- a perfect way to make a difference in towns across Maine!
We are always looking for energetic volunteers who can represent us around Maine. We’ll work with you and give you the resources you need to give simple presentations to groups and organizations on a variety of topics including Social Security and Medicare, livable communities, fraud protection and more.
