There are many ways for volunteers to stay connected with AARP Massachusetts. Get involved at one of our virtual meetings and join phone calls to learn more about how you can make a difference in the lives of the 50 plus population!
Working with a network of volunteers, help build AARP presence in Massachusetts by planning events and engagements, collaborating with community partners, and educating members and non-members on health and financial security to help people live their best lives. Monthly virtual meeting occurs on the 3rd Friday of each month.
AARP is a strong advocate for Massachusetts families on key issues, including improving health care access, quality, and affordability; long term services and supports; and economic security. Contact your state and federal elected officials about key legislation impacting Bay State residents as an AARP e-advocate. Coordinate AARP advocacy activities in your community or congressional district. Educate voters on where candidates running for state and federal office stand on issues important to people age 50 and older.
How to get involved:
- Become an E-Activist at mobilize.us/aarpma
- Join our First Friday Advocacy Calls on the first Friday of each month.
Lead educational presentations right in your community! Choose from a variety of social impact topics, such as Caregiving, Social Security, and Living Longer/Living Smarter! AARP has created a series of online toolkits with all the resources needed to give these 30-60 minute long, interactive workshops!
