The COVID-19 pandemic has irrefutably brought on many unprecedented challenges over the last two years. Even so, our AARP New York volunteers have continued to persevere in the face of adversity to learn how to mitigate and overcome these challenges to strengthen and serve their communities. This remarkable display of resolve and resilience exemplified by our volunteers has made AARP New York think even more deeply about its mission, strategy, and social impact.
With the recent swearing in of a new mayor, borough presidents and a majority of the 51-seat City Council, AARP in New York City would normally have spent the early part of the year meeting new lawmakers. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic forestalled such in-person events.
We're looking for people who want to bring their commitment and talent to make a difference in the lives of people 50 and older in New York. If you have a passion for the issues faced by people 50+ and are a strategic thinker and planner who has led others to achieve common goals, we encourage you to learn more about AARP's volunteer positions.
Do YOU enjoy giving back to your community? AARPNY is seeking virtual volunteers to support AARP programs and advocacy work that will make a difference for New Yorkers 50-plus and their families. All it takes is a computer, tablet, or phone from the comfort of your own home!
