Do you know an extraordinary volunteer age 50 or older?  Please show your appreciation by nominating him or her for the 2018 AARP Utah Andrus Award for Community Service. The annual  Andrus Award for Community Service is AARP’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award.  It recognizes individuals who share their experience, talent and skills to enrich their communities in ways that are consistent with AARP’s mission, vision, and commitment to volunteer service, and who inspire others to volunteer.

AARP has always been about service. The Association was founded by a volunteer, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, more than 50 years ago, and is guided to this day by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and National Policy Council. Each of AARP’s 53 state offices (which include the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands) receive direction and support from an all-volunteer Executive Council and extended volunteer team. And AARP manages several major volunteerism initiatives.
Are you looking for a meaningful, part-time volunteer opportunity? Even if you have a job, you could still become a part-time volunteer. Consider AARP’s Driver Safety program, which is operated in Utah entirely by volunteers.
