AARP Neighbors Create The Good Online 

Group of happy and excited people who want to Create The Good
For 50 years, AARP has honored the legacy of service handed down by our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus. We have done so by engaging our members with a wide range of opportunities to serve others. More than 9 million people make a difference through AARP's various networks for volunteers, donors, and activists.

Today, AARP is expanding the volunteering opportunities we promote to help people make a difference in their communities and beyond. Create The Good enables people to improve the lives of others, whether through a five-minute online commitment or an ongoing engagement. Join today to get email updates about easy ways you can get involved.

Many AARP members want to help, but often they are caring for children and parents while holding down full-time jobs, or even working into retirement years, leaving precious little time for volunteering. So the online mission of Create The Good is to provide easy access to a multitude of ways that people can help others in their communities—whether via the Internet, on the phone, or in person.

Visitors can use the database to search for or post a volunteer activity or information about local events that contribute to the health, safety, and well-being of others. Almost anyone—local agencies, individual members of communities and organizations—can post opportunities. We want to make it easy for you to lend a hand, in your time, on your terms.

We also recognize that our members can offer each other a wealth of ideas and wisdom. Create The Good, a group in our Online Community, was created for that purpose. Join the discussion, share your experiences, and get new ideas for events and actions that can help people in your communities like yours.

AARP was founded with the motto, "To Serve, Not to Be Served." Through Create The Good, we are increasing the number and involvement of volunteers around the nation. Giving back helps keep all of us active and healthy, while meeting urgent needs among our extended families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and the other communities to which we belong.
With your help, we're off to a great start at Create The Good. We look forward to working with you and our nation’s leaders to ensure that AARP is fulfilling the legacy of our founder when she said:

"The challenge to live up to our better selves, to believe well of our
fellow men, and perhaps by doing so to help CREATE THE GOOD,
to experiment, to explore, to change, and to grow."
