Program 1

Community Engagement, Education, and Outreach provides programs, services, tools, information, and advocacy that advance the mission of AARP by helping to fulfill the wants and needs of people age 50+ and their families. AARP's 53 state and territorial offices offer needed assistance, information, and support to Americans 50+ at the state and local levels. This includes a wide range of community-based activities that engage the diverse 50+ population and their families, such as educational programs, health fairs, career expos, and volunteer opportunities. An important element of our state and local work is grassroots advocacy on state and local legislative and regulatory issues, including utility rates, caregiving, and work and save programs.AARP also advances our policy agenda at the national level through advocacy that proactively addresses issues important to people 50+, including caregiving, health, saving and planning, Social Security, and age-based discrimination. Underlying our policy agenda is the in-depth research conducted by AARP, which also provides a foundation for our program development and for the information we provide on key issues affecting 50+ Americans, including, in addition to those listed above, livable communities, work and careers, and more. AARP offers training and education programs that help people 50+ improve their lives, such as AARP Driver Safety courses, technology education through the AARP TEK program, and local workshops and activities on matters such as preventing fraud.AARP also facilitates the participation of 50+ Americans in bringing about positive social change in America. Initiatives include Create the Good, which connects individuals to a network of people, tools, and time-flexible volunteer opportunities; Andrus Awards for Community Service, which recognize people who have made a difference in their communities in ways that support AARP's mission, vision, and direction; and the work of AARP Chapters, which engage members in community service and fellowship.
