Scammers don’t take a holiday break. That’s why the AARP Fraud Watch Network™ offers a full range of free tools and resources to help you spot and avoid common scams during the holidays and throughout the new year.
December 4 to 8, 2023 is Older Driver Safety Awareness Week (ODSAW), a time to empower older adults to improve their safety on the nation’s roadways. This is important because – even though they are safe drivers overall – older drivers are more vulnerable to severe injury or even death when involved in a vehicle crash.
The heart of AARP Minnesota's work revolves around our volunteers. We are grateful to our volunteers who bring to life AARP’s purpose to empower people to choose how they live as they age. AARP volunteers are skilled, dedicated and passionate about giving back to their communities and helping the 50-plus population live their best lives.
Sara Barsel has been awarded the 2023 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service for Minnesota. The annual award is AARP’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award. It recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich their communities in ways that are consistent with AARP’s purpose and vision. Their commitment to volunteer service embodies AARP's founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, belief in the power of ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
The generation gap is often used to define and separate people, but it holds the power to strengthen communities and teach across generational lines. Join AARP Minnesota and Pollen for an opportunity to connect with people from each decade – from 20s to 90s – to discuss different perspectives on financial security and wealth disparities.
Keep AARP in mind when you’re planning programs for community groups or organizations. Our presentations and workshops provide useful tools and actionable information to help Minnesotans 50-plus live their best lives. The presentations are typically 30 to 60 minutes and can be tailored to meet your needs. Please note that AARP MN requests at least 15 attendees for a presentation.
AARP is gearing up for the summer by offering active outdoor events. Our group bike rides are guided by the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota (BikeMN) and feature cycling destinations across Minnesota. These rides are a great way to explore the outdoors and all ability levels are welcome.
