AARP is the nation's largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering people 50 and older to choose how they live as they age. With a nationwide presence and nearly 38 million members, AARP strengthens communities and advocates for what matters most to families: health security, financial stability and personal fulfillment. AARP also produces the nation's largest circulation publications: AARP The Magazine and AARP Bulletin.

AARP's Community, State and National Affairs (CSN) Group includes Government Relations, Programs, Volunteer Engagement, Community Outreach and Advocacy at the federal, state and local levels. It delivers on AARP's social mission by educating and engaging people 50-plus and their families, strengthening communities, and championing issues that help give people financial and health security.

Responsibilities

You will work under the close supervision of Campaign management staff. Self-motivation and the ability to work independently as part of a team and collaboratively are required. You will have opportunities to work closely with the Manager and other members of the Campaigns team as necessary, to support the goals of AARP Campaigns.

Primary duties will include:
  • Preparing materials related to AARP's multi-state campaigns by using PowerPoint, Word documents, and Excel spreadsheets.
  • Gathering research and compiling information and recommendations regarding priority advocacy issues. This could include online searches, reviewing publications, and accessing library materials.
  • Collaborating with other organizations around AARP's priorities.

Prospective interns must be currently enrolled in a degree program at an accredited college or university; be considered rising undergraduate juniors or seniors, graduate students, or post-doctoral students; and remain academically enrolled throughout the internship.
