Business Unit Description

AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, with a membership of nearly 38 million that helps people turn their goals and dreams into 'Real Possibilities' by changing the way America defines aging. With staffed offices in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, AARP works to strengthen communities and promote the issues that matter most to families such as healthcare security, financial security and personal fulfillment. AARP also advocates for individuals in the marketplace by selecting products and services of high quality and value to carry the AARP name. As a trusted source for news and information, AARP produces the world's largest circulation magazine, AARP The Magazine and AARP Bulletin.

The Community, State and National Affairs (CSNA) team is a key contributor to AARP's mission of social change for Americans 50+ and their families. CSNA drives social change through our advocacy work by giving our members a voice-at the federal, state, local levels and community levels-on issues important to them such as Financial Resilience, Health Security, and Personal Fulfillment.

With a network of 53 offices in each state, the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, we live where we work. This allows us to do what we do the people and directly engage in our communities to find out what they need and want, enabling us to educate our members with programs and information that is relevant to them.

Our state offices work hand-in-glove with AARP's national office in Washington, DC. This reach-from community to state to federal - enables CSNA to better empower people 50+ to enjoy the way they live and work today, while reaching their goals for tomorrow...their life - their way.


Are you a student with a social mission drive? Do you want to help protect our nation's older population to stay safe from scams and fraud? Then Team Fraud Prevention is looking for you! Our team is focused on educating the public on scams and fraud to help them avoid becoming victims. Our co-team, Team Victim Support, is there to help people who have been targeted or victimized by a scam or fraud. We are a small and nimble team with a range of needs that we'd love your help with.


As an Intern, you will apply strategic, analytical and creative thinking to help with our core areas of internal and external communications, internal and external partnerships, and state relations (we have offices in all 53 states and territories that all engage in our "Fraud Watch Network").

You'll manage our fraud scam tracking map, help with our biweekly "Watchdog Alerts" that we send by email and text, and help with "promotional blitzes" where we focus on a specific type of scam and get the word out about it. You'll get to attend industry events around town, and engage in internal and external meetings. As a side project, you'll manage a Social Security Question and Answer tool, to help get our members' questions about Social Security answered by our expert. You will learn a lot about this important program!

We'll challenge you to think and work in new ways. We are committed to your growth and will cultivate your continued learning and development
