Overview

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.

Are you a student eager to make a difference in your community? Do you have an interest or experience in the social impact sector? Does the idea of wearing multiple hats and gaining experience in a variety of roles for a leading social change organization get you excited? If so, let's talk.

The AARP Nevada State Office team works to advocate on behalf of Nevadans 50+ and their families, provide resources and educational opportunities, and deliver fun events across our state. If you want to learn from a great team of professionals, apply now for this incredible opportunity! As an intern, you will work directly with AARP Nevada staff members to serve Nevada's urban, rural, and multicultural communities. You will apply strategic, analytical, and creative thinking skills to solve challenges and help develop innovative ways to further our goals.

On any given day, you could be facilitating a volunteer meeting, providing tech support during a virtual fitness class, developing an outreach plan, meeting with community partners, or preparing for an event. We'll challenge you to think and work in new ways. We are committed to your growth and cultivating your continued learning and development. This paid internship has an anticipated start date of spring/summer 2022 and will go through the end of the year.
